Geography is my WORST subject. Give me chemistry, give me algebra, but don't give me geography. I have printed out some outline maps of Ancient Egypt. They are supposed to label the Delta area. I am not exactly sure what part is the Delta exactly and where to divide Upper & Lower Egypt. The maps I have seen don't divide it for you or mark the Delta. I guess they assume most people aren't dumb like me! Help! Please!

Sorry Teresa, we are studying Egypt too so I checked all of our maps. I couldn't find it either.

I think I'd just say "Well, kids, the Upper Delta is.....at the top.....and the Lower Delta is....at the bottom!" *tries to look wise for the kids* Tee hee!

I always thought the delta was the area near the Nile river. Thats why the say the 'fertile Delta area' I'm not all sure on Upper and Lower Egypt. Let me have a look.

This might help more with defining the delta http://visibleearth.nasa.gov/view_rec.php?id=3147
http://elliottback.com/wp/archives/2005/04...ypt-nile-delta/ So any map you have that shows that darker area coming off the river and river branches.
