Title: The Nile in Crisis
Description: This lesson, from Xpeditions, asks students to examine the current water situation in the Nile River region, focusing on the Blue Nile and the Egyptian Nile, and to investigate ways in which the damming of the Nile has changed this river significantly from the way it was in ancient times. Students create educational brochures for tourists to Egypt, explaining the relationship between the Blue Nile and the Nile and the potential water crisis facing Egypt.
