Today, the children took part in the ‘Great River Nile’ game! The children were given roles as part of a trading game to investigate the role of the River Nile in Ancient Egyptian life. Working in groups, the children were either farmers, bakers or clothes-makers. Using the texts from our library, the children answered questions about the River Nile to earn wheat or flax cards to make bread or clothes. Throughout the game, there were different disasters to help the children understand the importance of the Nile, such as using boats to trade along the river. At the end of the game, bread and clothes were exchanged for jewellery and the team with the most jewellery won! Finally, we answered the question: Why was the River Nile important?
