Teach:
So we learned that living by the
   Nile river provided advantages
   that can be divided into 3
   categories
• agriculture,
• trade, and
• site security
all of which contributed to the
   tremendous development and
   progress of ancient Egypt
   civilization to become one of
   the most table and powerful
   of their time.

   of ancient Egyptians:

1) The development in agriculture by the Nile river
   influenced the economic and technological
   progress

Can you give me some example:
      6.2 Students analyze the geographic, political,
     economic, religious, and social structures of the
              ancient civilizations of Egypt.

2) The impact of trade networks connecting various
   regions of Southwest Asia on Mesopotamian
   civilization; the importance of commercial, cultural,
   and political connections between Egypt and other
   states.
How would trade strengthen their relationship with
   other states?

3) The physical and geographic
   location of the Nile river
   provide protection against
   inside disorder and foreign
   invasion for the Egyptian
   government.
Can you tell me how?
           Practice.
    Now, what do we do next:
•   Divide into groups of 4 or 5.
•   Check out the concept map handed to
    you to see what specific information
    you need to find.
•    By clicking on the following link access
    the Archeology Channel WebQuest to
    watch a video
    (http://www.archaeologychannel.org/co
    ntent/video/Egyptgift_56kR.html#).
•   While watching the video take some
    notes to complete your concept map.
          Next Webquest (Practice):
•   then access the Franklin Schools’ site
    (http://www.franklin.ma.us/auto/schools/horace/grade6/corey/ss1/egypt.htm) to take
    notes of the relevant material and concepts for the Concept Mapping that address
    the cause and effect aspect of living by the Nile river had for the Ancient Egypt
    civilizations. In addition to the resources provided in Franklin Schools and Archeology Channel
    WebQuests the following list of reliable sites help you research in for information for mind mapping activity:

  culture, customs, art
  expression, architecture,
  political order, and social
  structure was very much tied
  to religion, extremely stable,
  and changed little over a
  period of almost 3000 years.

  aspects of life in ancient Egypt.

  and paths to social mobility
  in ancient Egypt Civilization.

In regard to what we learned from
    our readings and discussion,

  status could advance to higher
  status in the society?

            order of the society.
