Description
Over the centuries civilizations rise and fall. Before European explorers reached the shores of North and Central America, a great empire arose: the Aztecs. Leaving their original home in the north, the Aztecs came south, looking for the right place to build their dream city. They chose the most unlikely of places to settle- a snake-filled, barren island in the middle of a swamp. But with their energy, imagination, and determination, they not only built their city but conquered all those surrounding them to spread an empire more than 80,000 square miles (130,000 sq. km). Meet the Aztec gods, and learn what the Aztecs did to keep them happy. Discover what its like to walk in the footsteps of an Aztec warrior, a noblewoman, a priest, or a slave. Find out what they wore, what they ate and who their enemies turned out to be. Key Icons to look for have been placed throughout the books in this series in an effort to encourage library readers to build knowledge, gain awareness, explore possibilities and expand their viewpoints through our content rich nonfiction books. Key Icons are as follows: Words to Understand are shown at the front of each chapter with definitions. These words are then used in the prose throughout that chapter, and are emboldened, so that the reader is able to reference back to the definitions building their vocabulary and enhancing their reading comprehension. Sidebars are highlighted graphics with content rich material within that allows readers to build knowledge and broaden their perspectives by weaving together additional information to provide realistic and holistic perspectives. Educational Videos allows the reader to view videos by scanning our QR codes, providing them with additional educational content to supplement the text.
