Short Description

When most people think of ancient Egypt, they think of the Pyramids at Giza and the Sphinx. These amazing structures were indeed built by the Egyptians, but they accomplished so much more! The ancient Egyptians build their whole lives around the River Nile. They used the mud it brought each year in the floods to grow their crops, build their homes—even make their beds. They were an ingenious people with rich lives in business, government, religion, and science. Doctors were real celebrities, and though they had some funny ideas (like using mouse parts as medicine), but they used some of the same substances we still use today. They accomplished so many firsts—the first umbrellas, the first lighthouses, even the first zoos. Read to find out what other amazing things the Egyptians did.
