This is a picture of two farmers working together.

CropsEgyptians planted many crops including wheat and barley.

HousesMost Farmers were not wealthy and lived in mud brick houses.

This a model of what one might look like.

AnimalsAnimals were really important to farmers because they helped them do jobs and plow the fields. They had goats, ducks, geese, pigs, and cows.

SeasonsFarmers had three seasons. Inundation, Emergence, and Harvest. Inundation was when the Nile flooded. Emergence was when the water receded and there was rich soil. The last is Harvest when the crops came in. They believed that the god Hapi flooded the Nile he was happy with them.SummaryFarmers worked together with their family to pick crops. They worked together to get the things they need.SourcesGoogle WikipediaGoogle Images
