Language Arts Figurative Language. Two types of figurative language used in chapters six and seven are simile and metaphor. They are both clever ways of comparing two things.
Watch for similes and metaphors in your reading and try to use them in your writing to make it more exciting and colorful! That is easy — but for some words that system doesn't work. Words that end in —sh , -ch , -x , -s , and —z need a different ending to make them plural. These words need an —es to make them plural and you can even hear that when you say it — glass-es , fox-es.

Lentils are grown in Egypt and are among the most nutritious legumes, rich in protein and carbohydrates.
They contain calcium, phosphorous, iron, thiamine, riboflavin, vitamin A and vitamin C. Remember the story of Jacob and Esau? Well, Esau sold Jacob his birthright for a pottage of lentils. They grow well in poor soil and are raised all over the Holy Land. You can find lentils in the dry beans and dry peas section in your grocery store. They look a bit like split peas. Melt butter in large pan. Add lentils, ham bone and water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Add tomatoes, thyme, cumin, salt, and pepper. Simmer for about 45 minutes longer, until lentils are tender.
Serve with a salad and warm bread. Science At the beginning of chapter seven of The Golden Goblet , there is a description of life on the Nile, as the annual spring flooding takes place and farmers begin their work in the fields. Each year in June, Central African rains caused the Nile to rise, overflow, and flood the valley called the Inundation. After peaking in September, it receded, leaving a 10, square-mile-layer of rich mud on the fields. Farmers could raise two crops per year if their fields were irrigated well. Pharaoh owned all the land, decided on types and quantities of crops that would be grown, and rented it to the farmers.
The farmers then paid taxes in grain or cattle, and received food and necessities as wages. Beans, vegetables, barley, wheat, flax, sesame, flowers, pomegranates, olives, figs, and date palms were some of the things that were grown in Egypt. Farmers also kept donkeys, oxen, goats, pigs, sheep, ducks, geese, and bees on their farms.
To work their fields, they used wooden plows, tools, and bronze sickles.
At harvest time, grain was placed in mud storage silos to be ground later for bread. Farms were along the Nile River; in fact, most Egyptians lived within a few miles of the Nile. The Egyptians saw the Nile as a friend and adapted their life style to its cycles, looking forward to its "gifts. The fertile soil made Egypt, "Land of the Kemi" the ancient name for the river-borne silt on which their lives depended , the breadbasket for the ancient world.

The Nile was also the " Highway of Egypt" and was used for transportation , trade and communication. Sailing up the Nile heading south was easier than sailing downstream heading north , because boats were helped along by a strong wind. Going north meant going against the wind, but they were also going downstream and were able to move with the current.
The first boats were simple papyrus stalk rafts, with stronger, flat-bottomed boats carrying crew and cargo. The Nile River provided an abundance of materials for ancient Egyptian life : papyrus used to make boats, baskets, boxes, mats, sandals, furniture, and paper , mud along riverbanks used for bricks, pots, and jars , and a variety of animals living in marshes along the Nile used for food. With the natural barriers of deserts to the east, west, and south, along with the Nile and its cataracts, invaders could only hope to come in through the north — which was easily defended.
