“Who Made That Roar” is a fun Preschool Bible game designed to help your little ones think about the different kinds of animals on Noah’s Ark.
I love creating fun preschool Bible games!
Did you ever think that being on Noah’s ark must have been very noisy? I can imagine that Noah and his family were constantly trying to figure out which animal was currently making the biggest raucous and noise. There’s a good chance that no one got much sleep for those 40 days and nights!
But I bet if your preschooler was on that boat, they would have had a great time. They would have been trying to figure out which lion was roaring or which bird was tweeting.
Preschoolers love animals and this preschool Bible game can help them learn about some of the animals on Noah’s ark and the different sounds each of them made.
How to prepare for this preschool Bible game:
I have provided you with slides/pictures below. The pictures showcase the following animals:
a dog, a pig, some birds, a lion, a horse, an elephant and a cat
You can either use the pictures as slides for a Power Point presentation or simply print them off and lay them out on a table for all your children to see.
Notice that I placed my slides in an order that shows an animal being deleted once the children guess the correct animal. It’s up to you to choose to do this or not. But my order makes for a nice Power Point presentation.
Finally, I have given you five mp3 files that give you the sounds of the following 5 animals:
a pig, a horse, some birds, a dog and a lion
You will need to be able to “play” these animal sounds on your computer or a CD so that the children can hear them and figure out which animal is making the noise.
How to play this preschool Bible game:
Tell the children the story of Noah’s Ark. You can either read it straight from the Bible or use a good retelling of the story from a children’s Bible story book.
Next, share the first slide/picture that shows all 7 animals. Talk about these animals with your children and ask them if they’ve ever seen any of these animals in person. Ask them if they know what sounds they make.
Now tell the children that you are going to play some animal sounds. They will have to listen carefully to figure out which of the 7 animals is making the sound.
At this point, you will either share the rest of your Power Point presentation or simply place the pictures on a table or a chart for all to see.
Praise the children for making the right guesses.
That’s it! Have fun and maybe come up with more animals and their sounds.
