ENGLISH BAC PAPER (elaborated by Mr. Zaitri)
READ THE TEXT CAREFULLY THEN DO THE ACTIVITIES
the Greek historian Herodotus once said ‘Egypt of the gift of the
Nile’, the Nile River was the ancient Egyptians’ best friend even it
did flood every year. In the fall, the great river would overflow its
banks. At first the Egyptians lost their crops their houses and in some
cases their lives. However, the Egyptian people noticed after a time
that the floods came about the same time every year, in June.
Therefore, they planned: they would make sure nothing important was on
the banks of the river when it was time for the flood
the water level went back down, they would quickly plant new crops. The
floods brought good fresh soil up onto the land .This soil was ideal
for planting grains.
The river also gave them the chance to fish.
The Egyptians would build boats out of the wood and sail up and down
the river. They would use spears and nets to catch fish as well as
birds that flew close to the surface of the water.
The Nile also
provided protection from attack. People wanting to invade Egypt would
have first to cross the river, which was very wide in places. The
Egyptians could stand on their own side of the river and throw spears
at their r attackers. Any attacker who did cross the river was likely
to be tired from making the crossing.
Another important way that the
Nile helped the ancient Egyptians was in trade. Goods went to and from
the Egypt down an up the Nile, which had its mouth at the Mediterranean
sea . [PERSONAL REFERENCE]
