Wearing raincoats, the children went outside and splashed with Noach's ark in the water table. They even blew it across the water using straws. Inside students decorated a movable teyva with animals and Noach.

It is through special days like this that LYA's youngest stars are not only learning but experiencing their learning in a unique and everlasting way.
