River Nile is in Egypt .Now I am going to tell you where rain goes when it hits the hills or mountains .It starts raining and the rain goes onto a hill or a mountain and the rain slides into a river .The river can twist and turn and crash and bash until it gets to a sea or an ocean .That story can be used for what a river does.Now I’ll tell you about the river Nile .

River Nile

The river Nile is about 6,670 km in length and is the longest river in the world !!! Although it is generally associated with Egypt only 22% of the Nile ‘s course runs through Egypt !!! In Egypt ,the river Nile creates a fertile green valley across the dessert.It  was by the banks of the river that one of the oldest civilisations in the world began . The ancient Egyptians lived and farmed along the Nile,using the soil to produce food for themselves and their animals.
