You and your students will analyze five primary sources to help determine who the Aztecs were and why they were defeated. These sources include a mixture of text and codex (illustrations) from around the time of Cortes's invasion. There is a PowerPoint and a teacher packet to help you guide your students through the process. The student packet is easy to navigate with clear instructions. Enjoy the natural conversation that erupts as your students look at actual documents from the Aztec nation and debate with each other about who these controversial people were and what happened to them!
