What is a Shaduf?

 

Year 4 Have Been Learning How To Farm In Egypt!

 

We have made models of shadufs as part of our Design and Technology work, for our Ancient Egyptian studies.  The shaduf is a device that has been used for thousands of years in Egypt and is still used today!  Using a lever, the farmer is able to scoop water up from the River Nile and irrigate his crops.  A fantastically simple but effective way of giving those plants a drink!
