Product Description
This is a worksheet for students to fill in about the location of Ancient Egypt. This worksheet is comprised of two separate maps. The first map is a map of the continent of Africa and contains the borders of nations. On the first map students are asked to shade in the area of present day Egypt. The rationale behind this short activity is to make sure students know Egypt, as well as Ancient Egypt was located in North Africa. The second map is a blank map of present day Egypt and students are asked to draw/write in the following information; the Nile River, the Nile Delta, Upper Egypt, Lower Egypt, Cataracts (Rapids), an arrow that shows the direction the river flows, label both the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea, and A symbol/region for the Desert (located to the east and west).

This is a great activity to use as a starter for Ancient Egypt after introductory notes/discussion has been presented. Also, it can be utilized to reinforce learned concepts like the 5 themes of geography (example: How would you describe Egypt as a 'Place'), or identifying a type of map (example: What could the title of the first map be? What type of a map are these maps?), or components of a map (example: If we were identifying components of a map the checklist would be most similar to the __________ .). The previously mentioned questions could be used as discussion questions or placed on the board and have students put the answers on the back.
