The Noah's Ark Kit is the ideal tool to teach students what Noah's Ark was really like. The ark is made of sturdy cardboard which fits together with interlocking tabs. These tabs are secured with velcro, which makes for a remarkable sturdy model, yet one which is also light and flexible, and will rebound when a small student falls on it, rather than breaking. The kit includes 42 animals in pairs which are the same scale as the ark, 1:75 which means 1 inch equals 6'3". The roof lifts off in 3 different pieces so children can place animals inside and see how they would have fit. The kits does not come with decks, but there is an optional deck kit we sell to build multiple levels inside the ark. The kit includes the book "Amazing Facts about Noah's Ark" which answers virtually every question asked regarding the ark and the flood.
