Noah's Ark

We are really enjoying our new history curriculum. Each four week unit ends with individual or small group projects to explore the knowledge gained from the unit or to deepen knowledge in a particular area.

Katie and Owen are working together to build a model of Noah's ark.

Below is 'Noah' perched on Katie's finger:

They are building all of this to scale. One-quarter inch per cubit. Noah is six feet tall. You can see Noah standing on the table in front of the ark below. Kind of puts some things in perspective. Nothing like the nursery wall 'arks' :*)...

I think they are planning to add a few more details to demonstrate perspective.
