This storyboard does not have a description.
I don't think so, yes, and of course that's a puppy.
Yeah, that homework was crazy, right? Is there a bird on our flag? OMG, is that a puppy!
What are those other things on the flag?
Our flag has the legend of how the Aztec found their capital city!
So, the legend is...
The Aztecs received an omen from one of their gods, Huitzilopochtli, to build their capital where the eagle eats the snake on top of a cactus. This group of Aztecs, lo and behold, found a cactus on an island, with a Mexican eagle, snake in it's mouth.
See? On the flag, we have an cactus, on top of a lake, with an eagle sitting on top of the cactus. There's even a snake is in it's mouth.
Wait, so Mexico city is on a lake?
KInd of, but Mexico City is on top of layers and layers of old Aztec cities.
That's so... cool!
