Ancient Civilizations

In class 9 we have been learning about Ancient Egypt and here are the facts, questions and answers we have researched.

Egypt and Egyptians
Egypt is mostly sand and desert, where nothing grows. The ancient Egyptians settled on the banks of the river Nile which ran all the way through Egypt. They had plenty of water for themselves and their crops.

Why were the Egyptians great?
The Egyptians were farmers that grew crops for their families and the Pharaohs. The farmers were very good at what they did and soon the Pharaohs became rich. So they gathered men and decided to make pyramids as tombs that they could be buried in.


Pyramids are huge temples made out of large stone blocks. Pyramids were built in many different shapes and sizes. Today there are about eighty pyramids standing in Egypt. At Giza there are the biggest three pyramids which were built for Pharaoh Khufa. The best known pyramid is called the 'Great Pyramid'.

Gods and Goddesses
The Egyptians loved to wear lucky charms. Their favorites were scarabs. The scarab beetle was sacred to the Sun god, Ra.

Priests had to wash twice during the day and twice at night, to make themselves clean and pure for their Gods.
