CHW 3M 2012: Early Egyptian Civilization

Today, please read pages 55-58 and do the following in your notes:

  1. Explain why the Nile valley (especially the Faiyum) was so essential to early Egyptian civilization.
  2. Explain how surrounding geography aided Egypt’s growth.
  3. Briefly trace key events and changes in the history of the Old Kingdom.
  4. Explain why Imhotep was so crucial to Egypt. (By the way, Imhotep is mentioned in the film the Mummy and the game Civilization. The movie is horribly inaccurate; the game is not).

At the 40 minute mark, we will watch a video about the early years of Egyptian civilization: http://www.learn360.com/ShowVideo.aspx?SearchText=egypt+engineering&lid=4933462&ID=235885
