Benito Juarez, chapter 5

I'm just loving the boys' work these past couple of days! (See the post before this one, too.) Here are their Chapter 5 drawings of an old man visiting Benito (who was a lawyer at the time) looking for justice for his adopted son, who had been beaten by his landlord. Sadly, the landlord was an employee of the church and at the time, the laws were such that members of the church were exempt from them. This was an incident that confirmed Benito's desire to become a judge and change the law so that all people would be held accountable for their actions, and all people could receive justice for wrongs done against them. (J's drawing above, Zoo Boy's below.)

J's chapter summary above, Zoo Boy's below. We wrap up the work with this story tomorrow.

J's drawings are amazing! He is using perspective and filling the page and utilizing interesting angles... I don't think I drew like that until well into middle school. Awesome!
