The step pyramid had houses around it in the north and the south. Also the step pyramids had all togeather six steps. The first step on it was 398 feet long and 358 feet across. From top to bottom the steps were 198 feet tall and all very long omg that is really tall! Near the pyramid was a huge court yard that was consitered the first sports arena lol not the best place to play the sports that we play today, Even though they didn't play close to as many sports as we do today!
