Parshas Noach was taught extensively in the classrooms at IVDU Five Towns, with our rebbe and teachers teaching the students across all classes about the animals that Noach brought onto the teivah. In order to bring that experience to life, IVDU Five Towns had a petting zoo come, where the students were able to feed and touch the animals. The children got to experience firsthand what Noach had to do, keeping busy and taking care of the animals’ needs. At IVDU Five Towns, the children gain a tremendous amount of learning in the classroom, but it is equally important for them to gain the knowledge while experiencing things hands-on outside of the classroom, as well.
