Power point #1 is entitled, Ancient Civilizations – Egypt & North Africa and contains 30 slides and covers the following:
North Africa's landscape is covered by the world's largest hot desert; the Sahara. Most of the Sahara is too harsh for people to live. The Nile Valley, coastal areas, and the rare oases provide the only places that can support life.
Every year for thousands of years the Nile flows over its banks then it soaks into the ground, evaporates, or flows into the Mediterranean Sea. It left behind rich fertile soil for farmers as a dependable source of water and fertilizer for their crops. It doesn't rain in the Sahara, so Egyptians relied completely on irrigation from the Nile to farm. Egyptians dug canals to pull water out of the flooded river, which they saved for irrigation later. Fresh water, irrigation, and fertile soil is why people called it the “Gift of the Nile.”
Starting around 5500 BCE 2 major kingdoms developed along the Nile. Historians call them Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt. Around 3200 BCE, Egypt was brought together under one ruler, King Narmer or Menes. This is marked the beginning of the Egyptian civilization.
We know so much about the Egyptians because there are so many written resources and because their culture lasted so long with few interruptions whereas, other cultures were constantly changing and disrupted by war. Roman control of Egypt was the beginning of the end of Ancient Egyptian culture. Rome controlled Egypt for several centuries until Arab Muslims from the Middle East took control. They discouraged they old Egyptian culture and many Egyptians converted to Islam.
The Ancient Egyptian Civilization, was one of the first 4 early civilizations to develop and thrive.

Power point #2 is entitled, Ancient Civilizations – Ancient Egypt – Vocabulary Exercise and contains 48 slides and covers the following:
This product is a vocabulary exercise, in power point format, that covers the entire unit on Ancient Civilizations – Egypt. The students are provided a list of the 43 vocabulary words within the presentation. Each vocabulary word is presented on a separate slide and contains the vocabulary word and its common definition.
Humans have a long and mysterious history. Diverse types of people have worked together to figure out the mysteries of our past. Archeologists, historians, and scientists have discovered many secrets to the beginnings of civilizations.
The assignment is to review and master each of the 43 vocabulary words, to understand what they mean and how they became part of our vocabulary today. Sometimes vocabulary reviews can be a little “stiff,” so I have highly animated each of the 48 slides. They are also editable so you can feel free to adjust these slides as you need to.
Good luck and have fun with the presentation!
