Storyboard Text

  • The couple is having some money troubles and don't know how to fix it.
  • Hi. I'm an Egyptian farmer. The flood season is almost over and my family will barely last a week with the money we have. So let's hope today it gets better.
  • The farmer's wife makes pots for the house so they don't have to buy them.
  • What if I go into town and sell some of our custom pots?
  • That is a bad idea. No one would buy them because everyone has pots now. We have to think of something else.
  • We don't have enough money to last us after the flood. The flood has 1 month left.
  • The couple kept on fighting and fighting.
  • What if we go to the Nile and try and find some papyrus to make sandals and baskets to sell?
  • If I don't get a job soon, we might starve.
  • Women can't get jobs. So I'll have to get two.
  • FUN FACT-  Farmers harvested April and June.
  • The couple went but didn't see anything.
  • There isn't even papyrus that isn't underwater. I think this is going to be a rough month.
  • FUN FACT!-  Farmers grew flax to make linen.
  • 8 years later...
  • After that day, the family's luck got even better. Here. Let me show you what they will look like in a few years. Here is a hint. They have a bigger house.
  • FUN FACT- People thought of their Pharaoh as their ‘god’.
  • The couple both graduated from scribe school after 8 years. They have a young 8 year old boy. They are very successful now.
  • Hurry up. I'm late. Cuts can't heal themselves. And paper can't be written on without a scribe.
  • That's papyrus!! We're saved!!!!
  • FUN FACT- Egyptians used cattle, goats, pigs, ducks, cows, and geese to help farm.
  • What's this?
  • FUN FACT- The Nile River flooded between June and September,
  • FUN FACT- Some women became doctors if they went to scribe school.
  • Alright I'm coming. I am just remembering when we had that bad flood season and we almost starved.
