Students will identify the important qualities that the Nile River had to offer the ancient Egyptian people. Working in groups, students will create 3D objects that represent special features and resources of the Nile River. Each group will use the “3D Map of the Nile – Rubric” handout, a poster board, and art supplies such as paint, clay, tissue paper, toothpicks, Popsicle sticks, etc. Students will also need to do some research on the geography and history of Egypt. This project should take one to two weeks to complete.
