The Aztecs created temples to worship gods. The blue shrine is to worship the rain god. The red is to worship the god of war.
Chinampas are floating gardens. They used these to keep their plants from not having enough water.
Aztecs used canals to transport goods and people.
The End of The Aztecs
The Spanish conquistadors arrived in late 1400s. They came to become rich and convert the locals to Catholicism. The leader of the Aztecs, Montezuma II, welcomed the Spanish, led by Hernan Cortes. The Aztecs thought that he was the god, Quetzalcoatl, who promised to return in 1519. They killed Montezuma II and started war, and on their side were the enemies of the Aztecs. The Aztecs were defeated, but their story lives on.
