  1. In one picture I see the Aswan dam. The Aswan dam was built to help the people when the floods came.The floods would come and destroy the villages and homes close to the Nile. In the other picture I see the Nile river on the side of land. That is probably where the people went to get water. Alex Vires

  8. Yes it is in Africa. It helped a lot because it could be flooded if it wouldn't have been built. It saved lives. A lot of people had to move because there house was damaged. It was a very sad time in Africa when it flooded.

  10. The Aswan Dam helps the Egyptians when flood season comes.The dam does not help with crops.When flood season comes the dam keeps the water from over flowing that is what made the land fertile.Now the land is not as good for crops.So most of the population in cros is not as high.Which means less food on the egyptian tables.If the dam keeps back all the water the populations in egyptians will fail.The life of Egyptians is now better with no floods.So they can build their house close to the Nile as they want.

  18. I think it would hinder Egyptians because there would not be rich soil for plants, more harder to fish and they have harder water times.

  19. It did help the Egyptians because it helped them get water. And with food. It no longer floods because of the Aswan dam. The Aswan dam no longer floods and destroys crops. The nile is the longest river and leaves fertle for plants.The aswan dam keeps the Nile river from flooding. It helped because people can go out and ride there boat. Dominick Williams.
