Today is the bicentennial of Darwin’s birth (also of Lincoln’s), so in honor, today’s resources are books about evolution and variation among species. (As I noted in the email I sent out, the resources I pulled are lacking biographies of Darwin and Origin of the Species and such, because students have them out for a History Day project. This is as it should be.)
Today’s cookies are Black Forest cookies (chocolate and dried cherries) as I had some cherries I wanted to do something with.
