Parsha Noach

Parsha Noach נח “Noah”

  • Torah portion: B’reisheet 6:9-11:32
  • Haphtarah: Isaiah 54:1-55:5
  • Brit Chadasha: Matthew 24:36-46

Did you know: Noach is the 2nd parsha [portion] of sefer [scroll of/book of] B’reisheet [Genesis]?

Science: So, piggy backing (ha ha ha) on last week’s plant lesson, THIS WEEK we are studying the animal kingdom. For the younger ones, this is the most fun lesson ever. What kid doesn’t like talking about animals, poring over animal books, visiting the zoo, etc? So, we found this cute FREE unit study from This Reading Mama. For the older kids, we are studying extreme weather, especially the kind that causes flooding. We’ll start with the USGS (US Geological Survey) and learn about the basics of floods. Next, we will surf on over (wow, I’m just full of jokes today) to this site and do a geology/flooding lab with the instructions they give.

History: We will be learning about boats this week… the history of boats, that is. We’ll use this link and learn all we can about how boats came about, how they have evolved and what they are used for today.

Art: Rainbows, rainbows, everywhere! Make sure the younger ones understand rainbow basics (7 colors, etc): RED, ORANGE, YELLOW, GREEN, BLUE, INDIGO, VIOLET. Teach them the ROY G BIV acronym (or make your own pneumonic device for remembering the colors and their order). Then, you can talk about color mixing (primary, secondary, and tertiary colors). Next, for the small people, go ahead and pick one of these fun activities for rainbow art fun. For the older ones, we will use this lesson called Color Collision as a basis for our weekly art studies.
