Story of the World Ancients activity book. This was an easy project. All you need is an aluminum baking pan, aluminum foil, dirt, pebbles, and grass seed.
First, Red dug up some dirt from under our pine tree and put it in a tin baking pan. Then she tried to shape the river bed similar to the Nile.
Next, Red lined the river bed with pebbles to hold it down.
Then, she sprinkled grass seed on the banks to represent the Egyptians' crops.
Finally, it was time to flood the Nile!
And she flooded it good!
Now we wait and see if we get any lush crops of grass growing on our river banks. :-)
