Noah's Ark Bible Story For Kids

That was the story of Noah's Ark from the Bible.

Can you remember how many of each animal entered the Ark?

It was a pair and that means 2.

You have a pair of eyes.

You have a pair of socks or shoes.


Noah had to count the animals on to the ark.

Noah could have counted them on to the Ark in 1s, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9.

This would have taken a very long time and the animals would have got bored and started fighting. So he decided to be clever and count the animals in pairs or 2s.

Can you have a go at counting in 2s?


Have a look around your house and find as many pairs of animals or teddies as you can.

Line them up in pairs or 2s.

Can you count them?

If you are not sure whisper the first number and shout the second number.

Can you count these animals in 2s?

Counting in 2s Outside

Counting in 2s with money

In this country we sometimes use money to pay for things in the shop.

The coin that is worth the least that we have is a 1 pence and it looks like this:

Can you find some of these around your house (if not there are some on a sheet below)?

Can you put them in 2s and count them in 2s - 2p, 4p, 6p, 8p...?


We also have a 2 pence coin: 

This is worth the same amount as a pair of 1ps or two 1ps.

Can you find some of these around the house?

Can you count them in 2s?

Counting is 2s Extra Activities
