Our Very Own 'River Nile' in P5

 
 

We are learning about how the River Nile was so important to the Ancient Egyptians. We have been busy researching facts about the River Nile to display beside our model river in P5.

We grew real grass for our model to represent the 'Black Land' alongside the River Nile. It's great fun watching it grow. We love watering it and trimming it .
