The Land of Egypt for Little Kids
This map shows some of the key places and topography of the
land of Egypt during ancient times!
In Biblical times, Egypt was a very powerful and wealthy nation. They were able
to build the huge Pyramids of Giza because they had many slaves. Pharaoh, the
king of Egypt, enslaved the Hebrews until God used Moses to lead them out of the
country and across the Red Sea. Many important things happened in Egypt, and the
nation was talked about in almost half of the books of the Bible!
The land of Egypt was very hot and dry because it was in the middle of two
different deserts! People were only able to live there because the Nile River
provided them with water and fertile land, especially in Lower Egypt where the
Nile Delta is. The Nile is extremely long and is very unique for flowing north
because most rivers flow south!
Ancient Egypt is an interesting place and it is good to study it so that we have
a better understanding of God's Word and what it was like during Biblical times.
