Submit your homework from last night.

1.  Make a copy of the assignment and organize all the facts about the Aztecs in to the correct columns. If you don't know how to do it, be sure to watch the video explaining how the assignment works.

2. Turn in the facts organizing assignment here. Make sure you turn in the document correctly. If you don't know how to do that you can watch a video here.
