The Memory Questions found at the end of the lesson (p. 23) are also helpful. Why did God send the flood? God sent the flood to wash away the evil from the earth and save the human race.
How do we know from the story of Noah that the human family is important to God? We know that the human family is very important to God because God saved Noah, his wife, their three sons, and their wives on the ark during the Great Flood.
Science: Quiz is based on the information found in Lesson 2. Students should know the four parts of a plant: sepal, stamen, pistil, and pollen. Students should also know that not all flowers have all four parts. The corn plant is one such plant. The corn plant has two flowers which has the pistil one flower while the stamen is found on the other flower. Some plants have different flowers located on two different plants.
