Well, reading other people's response, I'm not sure why you say you cannot discuss fractals without logarthms. It sure sounds like investigations of fractals can serve the purpose of intellectual development of students. I wonder what you meant by "discuss." I wonder if you were thinking of "discussion" at much more sophisticated levels.
