Aidan Coll Period : 2 Aztec and Inca
One sport that they played was called Ullamaliztli. It was a game where you have to use your thigh or torso to get a ball through a loop hanging on the wall.
Another well liked game within the Aztec people was called
, this game was actually a board game
played with little red beans.
Another well liked game within the Aztec empire was called
Totoloque. This would still be used today in Las Vegas because it was a very famous gambling game.
Another game that was this time played by youths was a pole climbing game. All you have to do is get to the top of a pole slithered with oil. And what do you get if you win? MONEY, a shield, food and other certain things that are very liked.
Surprisingly I couldn't find anymore sports from like 8 different sights.
Religion was a giant roll in the family life aspect and in law as well. Every law put down by the Aztecs were based on and by religion.
In a the average family of an Aztec citizen family life is very different to an american because often many times 1 man would have more than one wife.
Marriage and children were also a very different story from life today. The men would be considered ready to marry around twenty years old, but women would be considered ready at their teen years. Also children were very different they would get a religious ceremony but if the mom dies then she is then celebrated as warriors.
Another very important thing that tied into family life was what ceremonies they did. One ceremony which was very important was because of their bathing. They did ceremonial bathing to cleanse themselves spiritually and physically and was very important to people everywhere in the Aztec empire.
One thing that was very important to all people of the Aztec empire was the universal education of all children in the empire. No matter what, children will always get good education.

They were used to mostly grow vegetables and only some fruits.
It would take hundreds or thousands of men to harvest all of the food that were in the chinampas.
Were very easy to build so making many of them wasn't a problem.
The chinampas were very cheap to build as well only needing rope,mud,soil,and sticks but you would also of course need the plants.
To harvest them you would actually need to ride out in miles of lake to finish getting them so it took a little while to harvest them.
They were used in Aztec everyday life for food gathering and other necessities.
They were also used as canals for canoes and can surprisingly be lifted if attacked.
There were about three large ones connected to Tenechitlan
The causeways were also used to get from island to island for whatever reason.
The causeways led through basically every part of the lake and was one of the most used things in the city.
They also had very good bathing and that's what a
The Inca built many aqueducts to catch and conserve water because they were in the Andean Mountain region where it was extremely dry.
