Make a Shaduf
Ancient Egyptian farmers had real trouble getting water to their crops. They needed a SHADUF.
Apart from the yearly flooding of the River Nile, there was little water in Egypt. Without water, the crops would wither and die in the hot sun. Farmers needed a way to get the water from the streams and canals to their fields. They used a device called a SHADUF to do this.
Your challenge is to have a go at making your own shaduf.
I have included two different methods for you to have a go at (see word document below). Choose either method or have a go at both. If you are just going to make one and you have the resources to, method 2 will be better as the yoghurt pot will allow you to pick up water.
Please share your shaduf with me on ClassDojo. I'm really excited to see them.
