EDUCATION/ FAMILY LIFE
The Aztecs believed that education was necessary for everyone, boys
and girls. Families began to teach children starting at birth with the men teaching the boys and the woman teaching
the girls. Afterwards the children were either sent to Tepochcalli or Calmecac, according to their social rank. Tepochcalli
was the school for the common families children. On the otherhand, children of the nobles were sent to Calmecac where they
were trained to become powerful military leaders. Back then, women would usually marry at age 16.
Because of The Valley of Mexico's desirable climate, farming was very important in the
Aztec's daily life. Methods they used included the borrowed idea from the Olmecs, slash-and-burn farming, terrace farming
and the use of plotter Chinampas. All of these different methods helped to produce an abundance of their major crops including
corn, chilli peppers squash tomatoes and beans.
