The Nile River

Post  David Strauss on Fri Sep 26, 2014 8:24 pm

The Nile River is the longest river in the world with about 6,853km long. The Nile has two tributaries, the White Nile and the Blue Nile. The White Nile is considered to be the headwaters and primary stream on the Nile itself. The Blue Nile has the source of most water and fertile soil. The Nile flows north, not south. In the end of the Nile there is something called the Nile Delta which looks like the Nile splits up into many different parts that flow into the Mediterranean Sea.

Nile and Delta

Post  Ophirkes on Sun Sep 28, 2014 1:23 pm

Well described David! Did you know that thanks to these two rivers, civilizations formed in Egypt? Each civilization needs a good water source in order to be a well developed place for the people that live there. Since these rivers had something called a Delta that looks like a tree form, civilizations had a very easy time growing crops and farming for food. As well as that, the regularity of the Nile floods and the isolation of Egyptians created a feeling of security and changelessness to the people.

Well done, David! Did you know that the Nile Delta region is called the Lower Egypt, and the land upstream to south is called the Upper Egypt? The Nile River is the longest river in the world, you did a very good job describing it. This river played an important role in Egyptian civilisation.

The Nile River

Great job David! Did you know that the Nile was very important to the Egyptians? It played a very important role in the Egyptian civilization. The ancient Egyptians referred to the river's yearly flooding as the "miracle" of the Nile. The river rose in the summer from heavy rains in central Africa. It reached its highest point in early Autumn. Great topic! The Nile river is very interesting! Smile
