In History and Geography she mapped Phileas Foggs' journey Around the World in 88 days, and finished reading the book.Image can be found at www.latinamericanstudies.org/castro-childhood.htm
For her year long research project she decided to do a biography on Fidel Castro. Michelle's main question is; Did becoming a dictator and seizing control of Cuba help Fidel Castro to compensate for his emotional rough childhood?
This week Michelle started her Biology studies.
She enjoyed using the highlighter to help her find the main idea. This week she learned about the different theories and how they got tested and disproved. Also there was much talk about the difference from a scientist and a creationist.
We talked about voting, and she even filled out her own voting registration form(not real, she is only 14). She had fun learning about the requirements of being able to vote. Boy is she mad that you can't vote until your 18. We had a fun mock election as well.
