Use the paper triangles to create a picture.

Aztec sun

Did you spot the sun on some of the pages in Off we go to Mexico?

The Aztecs had different kinds of calendars. They weren't called calendars back then, they were called Sunstones.

The Sun god was the most important god to the Aztecs.

Can you use your 2D shapes to create an Aztec sun? When you have finished you could draw or paint an Aztec Sun.
