Learning About Aztec Culture

Submitted by david.thacker on Fri, 11/13/2020 - 07:46

Earlier this year, Mrs. Freeland's US History class was able to learn about the Aztecs from Marlone Diaz.  He brought amazing artifacts to show us and told the class stories and legends from the Aztec culture. We would like to thank Marlone for sharing this with us!

At Spanish Fork Junior High, we are always so excited to learn more about the different cultures that mean so much to our students. It gives a new insight into the lives and histories of our classmates and ancestors. Keep up the great work Lobos!
