ANCIENT EGYPT: THE NILE RIVER
Transcript of ANCIENT EGYPT: THE NILE RIVER
Some of the disadvantages of living by the Nile are: sometimes the Nile River floods and destroys all of the crops which can be a real problem as the people of ancient Egypt could only plant one time a year. If everything was destroyed the Egyptians would have to wait a whole year before they could plant again which would make everyone very hungry.
Many wild animals live in the river, some of them are very dangerous like the crocodiles and the hippopotamus. These animals are very dangerous in their own way. If you encounter one of these animals you might want to vacate the water. If they attack you when you're swimming in that river it might be the last thing you do.
Some of the advantages of living by the Nile are: you can get fresh water that can be cleaned by running it through a sieve. Without fresh water people would struggle to get enough water into their system.
It provides fish of all sorts that can be enjoyed by the people that live by the river.
It provides water and fresh soil for all of the crops but when you live in the desert you do not have the rite soil or enough water to keep them alive the hot climate.
You would be able to keep very clean and not worry about smelling really bad. You would be able to wash your hands after planting or playing in the dirt.
why everyone that lives in the dessert should move to the Nile river.
This is why everyone that lives in the desert should move to the Nile River: in the desert there is not much food sources, water, and shade. You will always have the sun beating down on your back, since there is no shade, your throat will be dry, and your lips will be cracked for the lack of the cool, fresh water. You will be starving looking for any food you can. It is too dry to grow crops in the dessert. It takes longer to get around on land then over water. At the Nile you can keep very clean but whilst you are in the dessert there is not enough water to take a bath and at the nail you can drink as much fresh water as you want, but in the desert you can't. In the desert part of Egypt it reaches the soaring temperature of 45oC but by the Nile it only reaches about 35-40oC. This temperature really helps the crops grow.
ANCIENT EGYPT: THE NILE RIVER
what did the Nile river do for the ancient egyptians
What else did the Nile provide besides water for the ancient egyptians
why did the ancient egyptians live near the river Nile
Here is some other information on what the Nile provided for the people of ancient Egypt: it also provides reeds which is also known as papyrus. This grow along the sides of the Nile. They made paper and boats. They also caught fish with nets and spears and they would also use nets to catch birds higher in the sky and then use nets near the surface.
This is why the Egyptians lived near the Nile: they lived near the Nile because it provided water, food, transportation, and when it floods you get thick mud (black slit) which was a very soil for crops

This is some of the things that the Nile did for the people of ancient Egypt: Apyrus was a weed that the Egyptian used for making ropes, baskets etc., grew wildly along the Nile’s banks. The Nile provided water for cooking and bathing. There were many Fish and waterfowls. Wild vegetables were found, and also bird eggs.
Each spring, snow on the mountains would melt in Ethiopia. The Nile River would flood. This was a very good thing because when the flood waters receded, they left behind fertile soil. That's what makes the soil so good for crops to grow. They could easily be grown in this black, rich soil.
The Nile River started in Ethiopian Mountains from heavy rains which created a river (called the Blue Nile because is is full of Slit (fine dirt)) which then leads into the White Nile (because it is whiter than the Blue Nile). The two rivers then connect joining together to create the Nile River. The Nile river then flows through seven African Countries including Egypt. It then ends at the mouth (the Nile Delta) of the Nile which is in Egypt. The Mouth of The Nile is connected to the Mediterranean Sea.
