    Why were Hieroglyphics made?Hieroglyphics were made so Egyptians could read pyramid tombs and other writing. Hieroglyphics are pictures. All pictures in Egyptian writing mean a different letter. They used hieroglyphics to make words like cool, hi, bye, and how are you. There are many words you can make with hieroglyphics. I hope you like learning about hieroglyphics.

    What Were The Uses of Boats? Could They be Used Everywhere on the Nile River?
    Often pharaohs would have their own boat to travel in, like Cleopatra. She was known to have very attractive and "beautiful" boats that she sailed in, the boats she was in were also big enough to have guests and banquets on. Boats often went up and down the Nile because they were such a good fast and easy way to travel like if traders had and merchants had to travel to another village, But the boats were sometimes destroyed by the cataracts (cataracts are parts in the Nile that are very rocky and have small drops in them, the speed of the water often picks up too) and the people would drown or get hurt.

    What Were Boats Made of?How Did They Make Them, And how big were they usually?
    Boats were usually made out of wood and sometimes they were made out of papyrus (pa-pie-rus). They put ropes through the papyrus or wood and bound the the peices of wood/papyrus together. Egypt had some of the most advanced "technology" of that time. The first boats of the Egypt Navy were about 25 meters in length and about 3 meters in width.

    Egyptian Boat Builders--Zachary Johnson
    Zach- I like the section that explains what boats were made of. In the first section, I am not clear on the uses of boats. Could you add to this? It looks like you are not quite finished yet. Be sure to site your sources at the bottom using BibMe. Ask me if you aren't sure how to do this. I see you have a favorite website. Did you use others as well? They all need to go in your Bibliography. Also- can you come up with a few more fun facts?~ Mrs. W

    fun facts
    Khufu was the most powerful man in Egypt
    Khufu was born in the 26th century B.C. and died in 2566 BC.
    Khufu's family was Sneferu, Hetepheres, and Princess Hetepheres
    Khufu was not his real name.
    THEN AND NOW
    The pyramid was importent for the following reasons. It was used to make sure that the body had a place to go and that they had a place to preserve the body. It was also used to makes sure that the body made it to the afterlife. Today we don't put people in a big building. All that we do is we bury them or cremate them. Some of us don't believe in the afterlife like they did back then.
