  2. Using graph paper, plot out the dimensions of the Ark (from Scripture – Genesis 6:13-16).  A project that could be worked on throughout this series is to build an Ark using Popsicle sticks, with the scale 18 inches = 1 cubit (see also Building a scale model of Noah’s Ark).
  3. Based on Scripture, draw a time-line that includes the time Noah took to build the Ark and the time spent on the Ark, also include how many days it rained, how long the land was covered, both fully and partially, etc.  Be creative!
