Week 5 - Farming in Ancient Egypt
This week we would like you to find out about what it was like for farmers in Ancient Egypt. Most farmers in Ancient Egypt were very poor and often were also slaves to Pharaoh. Using the links below and the PDF information file, can you find out:
How many seasons were there in Ancient Egypt?
What were the seasons called?
What happened to the River Nile during each season?
What did the farmers do in each season?
Once you've found the answers to these questions you'll be able to complete the worksheet. In each segment of the circle label the season and draw what the farmers would have done in this season.
