    DESCRIPTION Lisa L. Owens
    In 1504 Hernán Cortés left Spain for the Caribbean. Once there, he was given land, a home, and a good job. Eventually, he was given the opportunity to explore Mexico, which led to his conquest of the Aztec Empire. How can we learn more about Cortés, his conquest, and the Aztec culture he tried to destroy? We have letters, maps, and journals written by Cortés and those who traveled with him. We also have Aztec artifacts and the stories of those he conquered. Follow Cortés on his expedition through Mexico and explore primary sources from his time to learn more.

    From the opening page, audio and visual cues and easy-to-use tools help guide your students through the story. As the story begins, words are highlighted while they're read aloud. This type of word distinction better supports letter and word recognition skills, and keeps kids focused on the structure of how to read.
