Building a Shaduf

Our geography question this term is: What are the similarities and differences between the River Nile, the River Thames and the River Lea? Here we looked at how important the River Nile is to Egyptians both past and present. We worked in groups to build a shaduf. A shaduf is a tool used by farmers to lift water easily from the river into irrigation channels to water their crops.
