The history of the Aztecs is rich with fascinating events. The Aztec Empire became one of the most powerful empires in Mesoamerica but its history started with humble beginnings. The reading passage includes about twelve major events that shaped Aztec history. After closely reading the reading passage, students will carefully read twenty-three statements. Based on the evidence of the two-page reading passage, students will determine which statements are true and which ones are false. Then students will cut out the true statements so each statement is on a separate slip. Using their clues from the reading passage, students will place each strip of paper (major Aztec event) in chronological order. Lastly, students will complete a chart where they will write each event and/or year in the corresponding row in the chart. This activity will help students have an in-depth understanding of Aztec history.
