Product: I don’t have a physical product, because I went out to neighbors houses, and I talked about better resources that people can do now for the world, I just shared them information.

Personal Reflection: I got so many great new with this project I did, everyone thought it was a great idea, and they all thought I was doing something really beautiful for the community. I felt so much better about myself, and I though I was a really great person after doing this. There isn’t really much to reflect on, because it’s simple, I just feel proud for myself.

Notes of Feedback: Not much, my friend said that maybe I could have done a physical product.

Today in PBL, I took the star test on math, I actually felt somewhat confident in what I was doing. Later when I was done I had to finish my project by adding images, and editing, and just finishing a few minor things on it. I hope that with these new edits and changes I make to my project I can regrade and get a better score.

So today during PBL I was reviewing everything that I had in my project, I was making sure I had everything down that I needed. Making a few corrections and going through many of the details that I had in my website and editing stuff by adding or replacing. I also had to organize my website better to understand it better.
