Abraham Lincoln: Saint Or Sinner - Essay By Alex



Song:  King Arthur Soundtrack Compilation

Composer:  Hans Zimmer



This was a short term essay due the day after tomorrow...
and it was assigned today in Alex's Social Studies Class.


Today after Alex got home from school...
 finished his homework and his Musashi reading...
Alex had begun researching and compiling his information for this essay...
which he then had completed a couple of hours later.

I did a final check of his essay...
and he printed it out...
all before dinner.

Alex had taken notes in today's class on a film about Abraham Lincoln...
and had looked on line for other information.

I was particularly impressed at how quickly Alex had gathered his information...
compiled his thoughts on the matter...
and then typed out his essay.











Alex has a longer term essay for English he will complete this weekend.

We will also have to really start moving on his Science project.

Although there is a Physics concept I wish to teach Alex...
the theoretical and calculative portion of the experiment...is the easy part.

To actually make a working model demonstrating the concept...
 is the part I am still struggling with.

I am trying to gather the right equipment.

Just in case I cannot get the right components...
I am also thinking of an alternative experiment for which 
I have most of the necessary equipment already.

Either way...
it is almost go time!  :)
