Homework Help: World History Honors

Posted by mel on Friday, August 12, 2011 at 7:55pm.

Hi! Can anyone help me with this assignment...?

Using the primary source documents and information from your chapter, form a thesis that describes why Herodotus referred to Egypt the way he did (Why he referred to Egypt as the “gift of the Nile.”) Then, write a 550-word essay to support your thesis position. You are NOT to use any other secondary sources other than your text. Try to avoid use of quotations. If you must quote, then it can only be phrases from the primary sources.

I did the the 1st part of the assignment. as of why Herodotus referred the Nile as an important part of Egypt. Here's my answer:

Herodotus referred to the Nile River the way he did because it is quite true, the river is the most important physical feature in Egypt. Herodotus describes the Nile as important because he believes that without the Nile, the people wouldn’t be able to survive without the river for all of its water. He was fascinated with the idea of the Nile’s annual flood that brought water to the fields.

Now I need help writing a 550 word essay and i have to support my thesis? I have no idea what I have to do for this part. What exactly do i have to write about? I think 550 is too much but i have to do it but i don't even know what to do..
