This is a 17 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Ancient Civilizations - Egypt. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.
This is a The land of Egypt is defined by the Nile River, the narrow green strip of land on either side of its banks, and the fertile Nile delta area. The rest of the country is barren desert, the unfriendly “Red Land” that contrasted with the “Black Land,” which was home to the vast majority of the Egyptian population.
Egypt was traditionally divided into two areas: Upper Egypt, along the southern part of the Nile as far south as the First Cataract, and Lower Egypt, the northern delta area. The climate was good for agriculture, but with little or no rainfall, farmers had to depend on the river for irrigation.
The Nile River floods regularly and at the right time of year, leaving a rich and easily worked deposit of silt. Egyptian agriculture depended upon the floods, and crops could be adversely affected if the floods were too high or not high enough. Generally speaking, the floods were regular, and this inspired the Egyptians to view the universe as a regular and orderly place.
The presentation covers the following:
