Aztecs for Kids

Chocolate, sacrifice, temples, & more!

An interesting civilisation was Aztecs for kids.

The Aztecs were an advanced and wealthy civilisation that was most powerful from 1325 until 1521. They are famous for believing that sacrificing humans would keep their gods happy, but there are many more reasons to learn about them. They were excellent farmers, built enormous pyramids, were fierce warriors and impressive artists.

The Aztecs lived in the highlands of what is now central Mexico, surrounded by mountains and volcanoes. The capital city of the Aztec world was called Tenochtitlan, which was built on a lake that was later drained by the Spanish. Modern-day Mexico City is built on top of the old city.

The Aztec civilization came to an end when Hernan Cortes, who was mistakenly believed to be an Aztec god, led his Spanish army into Tenochtitlan and conquered it in 1521.
