The Aztecs

Front Cover
Gareth Stevens Publishing LLLP, Aug 1, 2012 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 48 pages
Myths and legends tend to overshadow the many other aspects of the innovative Aztec civilization. Aztec clothes, festivals, foods, and sports are just some of the topics that readers will discover. Each subject is complimented by a step-by-step craft that readers can construct with just a few simple materials. Projects, such as a straw flute, shoestring necklace, and paper “pottery,” support key concepts concerning the Aztec culture. The crafts’ easy-to-follow instructions are supported by clear illustrations, while vibrant photographs enhance the main text. Readers will appreciate the rich legacy of this important culture and reflect on the ways it has left a permanent mark on Mexican and American traditions.
