Ask the children to close their eyes while you set the branch out somewhere in the room. The first time hide the branch somewhere that they will not be able to find it. Tell the children to open their eyes, Noah is opening the window and has asked the dove to go find a sign of dry land. Can they find the small leafy branch?

After they have flown around the room for several minutes tell them that their wings are getting tired and that they have to return to the Ark. Let them rest for a moment and then get ready to send them out again. Ask the children to close their eyes while you set the branch out somewhere in the room. This time hide the branch somewhere that they will be sure to find it. Tell the children to open their eyes, Noah is opening the window for the second time and has asked the dove to go find a sign of dry land. Can they find the small leafy branch?
