Transcript of From the Land of Pharaohs...

Bongoyan From the Land of Pharaohs... Three unique landmarks are... The Climate... Three economies in Egypt... Culture My Personal Summary Images!!! Egypt has major landforms including the Sahara Desert and the Nile River. The Pyramids of Giza: They were built about 4,500 years ago and are still standing. They are made of 2,000,000 blocks of stone.
The Great Sphinx: The massive sphinx is located near the Pyramids of Giza. It has a lion body and the face of a human. It is unknown of what happened to its nose.
The Aswan High Dam: It was constructed by Gamal Abdel Nasser. It produces a huge amount of electricity and helps Egypt control its water supply. *Egypt only has two seasons due to location. Arabic is the official language (but there are different dialects throughout the country)
The majority of the people are Muslims (there are still Christians, though)
A religious ceremony is called Ramadan. At this time, Muslims fast while the sun is up, but feast when it is night.
Music is everywhere in Egypt. There are people who play string instruments and use similar rhythms similar to ancient Egyptian music.
The currency is the Egyptian pound.
Crops planted in Egypt are: sugarcane, oranges, cotton, and citrus fruit.
They also have a special dish called Shwarma
Children also go to school, but if they don't have money, they can't go, but one thing they love to do, play! Farming: It is a key part of the Egyptian economy because it provides food and clothing (cotton) for Egyptians.
Tourism: People travel to Egypt to see ancient treasures.
The Suez Canal: Ships pass through the canal to get from Europe to Asia and have to pay a toll to get through. The Pyramids of Giza Map of Egypt The Great Sphinx Shwarma Ancient Egypt King Tut What I found most interesting about Egypt was their culture. I say this because although they are moving into the future, they keep a lot of their history alive. I also like their culture because they have a variety of foods and dialects. I might as well visit Egypt someday. I choose to read about this place because it fitted the requirements I needed and it looked fun, but educational. Three adjectives I'd use to describe this place is poor (most people live poverty), hard-working (if people don't live on streets, they live on farms and families have kids drop out of school to help), and money-maker (people all over the world come to Egypt to see things like The Pyramids of Giza and The Great Sphinx and people who want to ship goods from Europe to Africa have to pay a toll and the money goes directly to the government. During winter, temperatures range from 58.5-61.9 degrees F.
During summer, temperatures range from 79.3-93 degrees F.
The highest recorded temperature was 122.5 degrees F.
The lowest recorded temperature was 16.8 degrees F. U.S.A. Egypt
