Egypt in Ancient Times

The Nile River plays an important role in Egypt, both in ancient times and today. The first topic today's reading talks about is how the river floods each year. (But that has changed a lot since dams were built.) This image shows the difference between the Nile River when it is normal and when it is flooding.

The second paragraph talks about how important the Nile River is to transportation. People have settled along rivers all through history because they could ship things easily from place to place. This picture shows Egypt at night. Look where all the people have settled. 

Finally, the Nile River is still important to Egypt today. This map shows where the Nile River flows in Africa. (The size of the river has been made bigger just to make it easier to see.)
