Directions: Underline the words in the story as you find them, unscramble them and write them in the boxes below. Edward Hicks was born in Pennsylvania in 1780. His mother died the very next year and he was raised by a Quaker family. He didn't do well in school, so his parents decided that he should work for a coachmaker. He enjoyed this very much and learned skills which helped him to become a painter. He married, and he and his wife, Sarah had four children. At one time he became very ill, and as a result, he began to think more seriously about his life. He started attending the Quaker church.They believed in peace and brotherly love. He was making a living as a coachmaker. He would paint signs and coaches, but he was interested in becoming a minister. He was a popular preacher. He began to paint pictures about "The Peaceable Kingdom". In fact, he painted at least 60, and some say 100 pictures with this title. He became an art teacher later in his life and lived to be 69 years old. The story of the painting of Noah can be found in the Bible in the book of Genesis.
