Storyboard Text

  • The ancient Aztec city of Tenochtitlan was around at about A.D. 1325 and 1521. Believe it or not, they meant to build the city! They did this by following a legend...
  • The legend was: in the middle of the lake was an island, and on that island was a cactus, on that cactus was an eagle, in that eagle's mouth was a snake. If the person were ever to see this, the city is to be built there.
  • This flag is a representation of what what the legend looks like.
  • They even expanded the city using logs and mud. Along with building causeways, bridges, and floating gardens!
  • The Aztecs somehow managed to expand their land to about 2,500 acres! It is unknown what they used to accomplish this, but it is extraordinary to think about it.
  • This city is truly fascinating. It was built without any iron or wood tools. They had the wheel, but it was a kid's toy. It was never used for practical use.
