    51. 51. Games Aztec Games Aztec Games Wednesday, February 4, 2009
    52. 52. Games Aztec Games Aztec Games The Aztecs had two different games - tlachtli and patolli. Tlachtli was a ball game that was played between teams using rubber balls. The court was shaped like a capital I and it was 60 meters long by 10 meters wide. One person on each team would have to shoot the ball into a vertical hoop high over their heads with their knees without using their hands. The hoop was placed on opposite walls at the midpoint of the court. In a way this game combined modern day soccer and basketball. Whichever team made the first basket won the game. Sometimes it took hours to complete a game. Wednesday, February 4, 2009
    53. 53. Work(Farming) Tenochtitlan was built on an island in the middle of Lake Texcoco. The Aztecs didn't have any farmland, so they devised a way to create their own farmland, called chinampas. The Aztecs planted corn, tomatoes, potatoes, chili peppers, and squash. The plants' roots would grow to the bottom of the lake so they would have an endless supply of water. The Aztecs didn't use any plows or any wheel-driven vehicles at all; they only needed and used a simple wooden digging stick and a wooden hoe for growing and harvesting crops. Fishermen made fishing nets from the fibers of the maguey cactus and used them to catch fish, turtles, ducks, and frogs. Wednesday, February 4, 2009
    54. 54. Education The children learned to live prudently, to govern, and to understand the history and ways of their elders, under strict priestly guidance. The Macehualtin (literally quot;workersquot;: tradespeople, peasants, and builders) children attended a local school, called telpochcalli. There they were taught basic occupational skills, the elements of warfare, and good citizenship. The children learned the fundamentals of their history and religion. At fifteen (15), boys attended either a calmecac or a cuicacalli. The calmecac was run by priests who taught religious and administrative subjects. Calmecac pupils also had extra religious duties, as well as lessons in history, astronomy, poetry, and writing. Wednesday, February 4, 2009
    55. 55. Dance/Music Music and dance were a significant part of Aztec life. Music and dance were closely linked to religion. The most common instruments were rattles, whistles, trumpets, flutes, copper bells, and shells. Everyone took part in dances performed especially for the gods, including peasants. An Aztec 'orchestra' was usually made of different types of rattles and different types of drums. Aztec children between ages 12 and 15 were taught to dance, sing, and play musical instruments. Specific Aztec instruments were used for specific things. The trumpet sounded long, deep notes while the percussion created hypnotic rhythms. The big temple drums could be heard for several kilometers. Their wind instruments included pan pipes, whistles, and flutes. Wednesday, February 4, 2009
