Freda is good. A little skimpy on her influence on history (with an 'H'), maybe? (Not sure if your teachers want " The siege of Carthage" or "George Washington, or will go for lesser-known people/things).
How about the New York Armory Show of 1913, which was a cultural watershed, and a point of time where everything changed at once, not simply art and design.
Or Diogenes of Sinope, a Greek philosopher (died 323). The founder of Cynicism, he led a wild and interesting antic life.
Joan of Arc. Sitting Bull. Archimedes-- so amazingly and wildly inventive. Ovid, Rome's great poet, exiled by the pompous Caesar Augustus. Caravaggio-- a wicked and genius painter, great story. Voltaire (18thc)-- he changed the way the world thought, and echoes on in modern times.
I like the idea of picking a non-big-wig, like George Washington, etc. You'll get more out of it and it won't be dull.
Is this national squirrel freak out week?
Yes, it happens a few days after the fall equinox every year. They realize they have to start saving for winter and totally wig out. Plus, I hear that the pecans have a strange strain of mold spore on them this year, which causes anxiety and disorientation among squirrels. That would explain the bizarre behavior. If they start doing the cha cha out on the lawn, I would suspect that acorns have been infected with the rare dancing beetle larvae, but that IS rare. Let me know what happens. If they do start dancing on the lawn, I'll have to come over with my shotgun and neutralize the threat. If let alone, the squirrels will infect pet dogs, crocodiles and hamsters and it could be very deadly to humans. It's very contagious at that point....
