In our second unit of inquiry Aziz took risks as an inquirer. Ms. Alison thinks these actions are an example of Aziz's best work. From the beginning of the unit, during our Dark Days, he showed a keen interest in and ability to explore materials in new ways. He explored concepts and strategies with his friends which led to long-term inquiries as a class. Aziz took a special interest in how the projector could be used in different ways, like to tell stories, make shadows, and create different colours of light with different materials.
During our unit of inquiry we became very interested in the changing position of the sun in the sky and the changing colours we saw. We read the book Sky Color by Peter Reynolds to support our ideas and went outside to observe and make some sketches of the sky.
Aziz chose this piece for his portfolio because "I did a good job of drawing the sky."
