Activity: (You can use your Knowledge Organiser to help you too.)

1) Print out, draw or trace one of the maps from the selection (I suggest the second map).

Click here for the maps.

2) Add the physical geography elements: River Nile, the Sahara desert, Mediterranean Sea, Red Sea, Lake Nassar, Tropic of Cancer, any mountain ranges and the compass points.

3) Now add the human geography elements: Aswan, Cairo, Luxor, Valley of the Kings, Valley of the Queens and the Suez Canal.

Key thoughts: make notes on - somewhere sensible - your map about what you notice about where the cities have developed. Write why you think they have developed in those locations.
