Passion Project Update

This week after two more weeks of working on my passion project, I have closer to my final goal. I have finished watching the Crash Course video on the Evolution of Life and I have finished taking notes and writing information down from the video. Basically, I have finished taking notes on the creation and evolution of life. An obstacle that I overcame was that it was very hard to understand and pull information from the video because it went very fast. Over the next few weeks, I am going to try and organize the information from my notes into my Prezi. I am also going to try to research more in depth about the Evolution of Life and different time periods. Finally, I want to research about the Evolution of humans. I don't think I will get this all done in the next two weeks but I will try. This is my progress so far about my passion project.

Passion project progress report

My passion project is about the origin and evolution of life on Earth. Over the past two weeks, have started my passion project and I have made progress. I have made a Prezi account so I can present my information better and in the format I want to. I have decided to present my information as a timeline and Prezi helps me do that. I am also watching the John Green Crash Course video on the origin of life, which is giving me a lot of helpful information about the origin of life. So far, I have wrote down some of that information onto my Prezi, in the first bubble of the timeline. An obstacle I encountered was how to create the format of timeline that I wanted. It also was very hard to understand and pull out details from the video because the guy talked very fast and with big words. In order to have my final project, I still need to finish writing information about the video and go into the evolution of living things, which I plan to do over the next couple of weeks. I have made progress on my passion project but I still need to make more progress to finish my passion project.
