This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Civilizations of the Americas - The Aztec. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Aztecs, who probably originated as a nomadic tribe in northern Mexico, arrived in Mesoamerica around the beginning of the 13th century. From their magnificent capital city, Tenochtitlan, the Aztecs emerged as the dominant force in central Mexico, developing an intricate social, political, religious and commercial organization that brought many of the region’s city-states under their control by the 15th century.
Invaders led by the Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortes overthrew the Aztecs by force and captured Tenochtitlan in 1521, bringing an end to Mesoamerica’s last great native civilization.
Many people in Mexico today can trace their ancestry and some culture back to the Aztec civilization, including the language of the empire Nahuatl which is still spoken. If you visit the country today, you'll see a lot of relics of Aztec culture there, including elaborate stone architecture, pottery, jewelry, paintings and more. Place names, religion - even ways of thinking that were seen in the Aztec civilization are still very much a part of Mexico today.
The presentation covers the following:
Map of the Aztec Empire
Early Aztec History
Aztec Empire Established
Cortez’s Army Arrives
Remnants of the Aztecs
