Storyboard Text

  • Hey! Down here! I'll be your guidance counselor. Did you know that Egypt is mostly desert and there isn't much rain.
  • Red Land (see left) and Black land (see right)
  • The 'red land' was the dry desert that protected Egypt on two sides. These deserts split ancient Egypt from other countries and invading armies.
  • The 'black land' was the fertile land on the banks of the Nile.This was the only land in ancient Egypt that could be farmed because a layer of rich, black silt was deposited there every year after the Nile flooded.
  • This is the Nile River. It is our main source of water, with cataracts and a delta. It floods every so often and leaves a layer of silt which we use as an irrigation system.
  • A cataract is a fast moving rapid which makes it hard to cross the river. The delta is our main farm land, because of the rich soil that is there.
  • This is Menes, our pharaoh. He controls both Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt. He is the first pharaoh to have a dynasty, or series of rulers from the same family, and to wear both crowns from Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt as one.
  • Our people believe in the after life and want our pharaoh to be happy and also have power in the after life. He will be mummified and then buried in a pyramid.
  • This is the pyramid our great pharaoh will be buried in. It wasn't built by me, I'm a scribe. It was built by all farmers or slaves who suffered a lot in the heat.
  • Hope you enjoyed the tour!
