Another example is that there are challenging parts for training.
- Again, I would only change "example" to "obstacle".
- Edited for word choice; Another obstacle is that there are challenging aspects of the training.

Also in the text it states," there are many challenging parts to the astronaut training, and the canidates must successfuly complete them all."
- Watch out for that first quotation mark! Try to copy quotes directly from the article so the spelling stays the same.
- Edited for punctuation and spelling; Also in the text it states, "there are many challenging parts to the astronaut training, and the candidates must successfully complete them all."

Astronauts all can't enter the program because there are challenging part to successes.
- I am changing "Astronauts all can't" to "Not all potential astronauts", because "potential" tells the reader that they are not astronauts yet.
- Edited for word choice; Not all potential astronauts can enter the program because there are challenging roadblocks to success.

Great job! I would say that the main thing to work on for next time is to pick quotes that show your point, but are not too similar to what you had said in the previous sentence. This is so sentences aren't repetitive, and you can pick a quote that shows a specific example of your general point.

***Edited for tense agreement and clarity. I changed "their mom and dad" to parents because the mother stork is mentioned at the beginning of the sentence.

The mother stork wants her children to learn how to fly because she wants the younger storks to do things besides staying in the nest. The mother stork wants the young storks to fly so everyone in the family can get to warm places. In the text it states that, "after the great review we shall fly away to warm countries, far from here, over hills and forests." Also, the mother wants the younger storks to fly to get their own food. Also, in the text it states that, "you are to learn to fly, and then we shall pay a visit to the frogs." The mother stork wants the young storks to fly so they can do what their parents do.
