Storyboard Text

  • On my way to school!
  • All Aztec children were educated regardless of their social status. 
  • The first step of Aztec education began at home with your parents.
  • From age 4-5 boys would learn from their fathers skills like fishing. Girls would learn from their mothers how to do household tasks.
  • The children would do this until they were about 14 years old. Then they would attend school.
  • There were 2 Aztec schools, one for the noble class and one for the commoners.
  • At the Telpochcalli school, you would learn agricultural skills, military training, trade and pottery.
  • Schools
  • Girls went to a separate school where they learned singing, dancing, crafts and household tasks.
  • The Calmecac was the school for nobles. This is where they learned how to be teachers, priests, leaders or even artists.
