And Noah had three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
And God, looking on the earth, saw that it was evil: for the way of all flesh had become evil on the earth.
And God said to Noah, The end of all flesh has come; the earth is full of their violent doings, and now I will put an end to them with the earth.
Make for yourself an ark of gopher wood with rooms in it, and make it safe from the water inside and out.
And this is the way you are to make it: it is to be three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide, and thirty cubits high.

Math Group and Class activity
Tell students how long a cubit is. It was the distance from elbow to fingertips (17.5in.-->20.4in.)(44.5cm-->51.8cm).
In groups, have students figure out the dimensions of the ark in a measurement they are familiar with.
Have the groups discuss and guess the dimensions of the classroom in cubits.
Ask each group what their guess is for the dimensions of the classroom in cubits and right their responses on the board.
With a measuring tape, measure the dimensions of the classroom, make the conversion to cubits, and see which group was closest. Note: You may want to do these measurements before class.
