« U.O.I and Portfolio »

Our unit of inquiry is “where we are in place in time ” our central idea was “The World Changes due to Natural Processes & Human Innovation.” We learned that

  • Why is there sand on the beach?
  • Will a mountain last forever?
  • Can a volcano pop up in our backyard?
  • What is strong enough to make a canyon?

But this is the work I want to show is on the side.

The photo is a paper that has my natural disaster work and click HERE to go to the slide I made for a tsunami. By the way, the pictures are there, but not information here are some facts about tsunamis

  1. A tsunami can rise to 300 meters high and more.
  2. Tsunami raises the sea level around 6 meters higher.
  3. Tsunamis are made from earthquake then sound waves make high waves and then when it hits land it bounce up to create a big wave.

I chose this work because I got a lot of information and this project made my brain expand with more information. I also chose this work because my brain just loves real facts about the world and what makes things happen.

So since I told you something how about you search any natural disaster and comment down below what natural disaster it is and tell facts about it.



People of Determination

Do/did you Have a difficulty in your life like being deaf or temporary sprain ankle or have problems with your brain. If you don’t know who has these problems or how to help people with it let me tell you now. This is” The People of Determination”

Well, this is people with determination like Ludwig Van Beethoven, Taha Hussein and many more. People may not be deaf at the begging but something in their life made them deaf.

Like Beethoven he wasn’t deaf at the begging he was fully capable of hearing till music made him deaf but then he was a famous composer even if he was deaf. And even if you don’t know the people you see but there are deaf or blind or even disabled, do anything in your power to help them.



Many people have a disability in fact 15% of the world have a disability in numbers 1 billion people have a disability.( http://www.worldbank.org/en/topic/disability ) So I think that disability is really common. And we can help if someone is walking the wrong way and are blind we can get them to the right path and even if they are not disabled, it does not mean you can’t help them.

I fell really bad for the people that have difficulty in their life so I am grateful that I am not disabled. So if you are not disabled be grateful that you are not.



Hi readers,

I am Raza and when I was eight I did not learn to swim did not even learn to float on water. but at 2017 July that is when I learned to swim.

Swimming was my weakness but my parents used thousands of dirhams just to make me swim and thanks to that now I can swim. But it took a while it took 5 days for me to swim but took more to perfect it

My goal was at least 25 meters under 1 minute. On the first day I just learned to float I never actually did not learn to swim on day 1. And on day 2 I practice my breath so I can hold longer then I can usually can. And soon on day 3 I finally learned to swim with my first stroke freestyle. And on day 4 I just perfected it. and on Day 5 I finally reached my goal 25 meters in 56 seconds.





Swimming is now my favorite sport now and each day I improve now my freestyle is 26 seconds and I also learned: backstroke, breath stroke, and dolphin.

Swimming can give you strength and make you taller. And what inspired me was the best swimmer Michael Phelps gives me an idea to become an Olympic swimmer. And till this day I am still practicing my swimming.

Writing Reflection

Writing is one of my favorite subjects because I can write a story in an open world nothing can stop writing because writing is another world.

I want to share the story that I made is a realistic fiction story here is the link so click HERE.  This is my favorite sentence of the story.

“Paul was hiding like a shell the bullies was kicking Paul like a ball.” I like this sentence because it shows the character trait in one line. And this is the editing.

This story is about a person getting bullied and being a bullier. The reason I put this story instead of the others is that I learned when I write realistic fiction there are limits in the other fiction you can write anything you want.

I learned that when you write a book you can write anything you want if it has a great structure it has a plot with a different idea then other books. And I learned when you write there are always limits to writing.
