5: Government The pharaoh/king had many ministers and officials surrounding him so the pharaoh didn't have to do everything by himself. The pharaoh got to pick anybody that he wanted to fill these jobs and most of the times they were the royal family members of the pharaoh. The most important job of all (except the pharaoh) was the vizier. The viziers job was to serve the pharaoh. It doesn't seem like it was that important but the vizier was very important to the pharaoh. There was only one vizier in all of Egypt. pg. 5

7: Laws/Disobeying Laws Some of the laws that they had were, property laws, marriage laws and inheritance laws. Property laws allowed each person including slaves to own their own amount of property or get rid of their own property. Marriage laws made sure that men and women had equal rights in marriage. If a slave married a free person that slave would became free too. Inheritance laws made it possible for children to inherit their parents money and property. pg. 7

8: This is a picture of Egyptian slaves and servants working. pg. 8

9: Social Classes The ruler was the pharaoh or the king. The officials were the priests, nobles, scribes and administrators. Middle class were the merchants such as boat builders, fisherman, dancers, artisans, herders and others. Farmers were at the bottom of the social class pyramid along with slaves and servants that did basically everything. pg. 9

10: Beginning/End of Egypt People started living in Egypt around 4,000-10,000 years ago. They moved there because it was so fertile. The civilization developed when the first settlers came to Egypt the climate was wet and the valley was green but then it got drier and turned into dessert so the settlers moved closer to the Nile to farm the land. Cleopatra’s death ended an era in Egyptian history in 30 B.C.E. and became part of the Roman Empire. pg. 10

11: This is a picture of the dessert valley. pg. 11

12: This is a picture of the Nile River in Egypt. pg. 12

13: Resources The biggest natural resource was the Nile River which supplied water, fish, transportation and annual floods to water the crops and keep the ground soft for growing healthy crops. pg. 13
