Transcript of "8 egyptian geography"

  1. 1. Social Studies for 8th E.G.B. | Teacher: Mauricio Torres
  2. 2. Introduction  Mesopotamia was not the only place where civilizations developed. The Nile River helped develop another civilization: Egypt. This river, the longest in the world, brought life to the people settled around it. Herodotus, a Greek historian called Egypt “the gift of the Nile”.
  3. 3. The Nile: Physical Features and Location   As mentioned before, The Nile is the longest river in the world.  It runs 6000 kms long.  It begins in central Africa and flows north to the Mediterranean Sea.  It created a fertile valley 18 kms wide. Outside this area, there is only desert.
  4. 4. Ancient Egypt  Ancient Egypt included two regions, one to the north and the other one in the south.  The southern region was known as Upper Egypt.  The northern area was known as Lower Egypt.
  5. 5. The Delta   A delta is a triangle shaped area of land made of soil deposited by a river.  Two thirds of the fertile land of Egypt is located on the delta.
  6. 6. Floods of the Nile  Egypt receives little rain throughout the year. That is the reason why it is mostly covered by desert. Rain in the highlands of east Africa caused the Nile to flood:  These floods caused the land to be rich in nutrients and ideal for farming.  This land was dark in color because of silt.  Egyptians awaited the floods each year, because it represented a “life-giving” miracle.
  7. 7. Ask Yourself  Explain  Where were Upper and Lower Egypt? Draw Conclusions:  Why was it important to the Egyptian’s that the Nile´s flooding was consistent?
  8. 8. Excercise  Type two short paragraphs:  Five lines each  Times New Roman  12 pt. The subject is, “What you know of Ancient Egypt”. Use your own words. Don´t do any research. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes! Start your first draft in class.
  9. 9. Bibliography  Burstein, S. M., & Shek, R. (2012). World History (Teacher´s Edition) (1st Edition ed.). (H. McDougal, Ed.) Orlando, Florida, US.: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company. Images taken from www.google.com
