On Charles Darwin

Logan has come a long way with this biography report. He stomped and whined and huffed a lot during each stage of the process, but his end product (and presentation) is looking pretty good.

One of the paragraphs he had to research, and write, about, was his subject's accomplishments. After several of my requests to get started on his writing, he looked at me with an exasperated expression and said, "But Charles Darwin doesn't have any great accomplishments Mom!"

Hmmmmm. Really? 🤔

So, I had him re-read a couple of significant chapters in his book, and we talked about it for some time, before he was finally ready to start writing his report. 😉

He practiced his oral presentation, a few times (and without objection!), tonight - he seems as ready as he's going to be for class tomorrow. I'm just glad he's done!
