Animal abuse/cruelty is a major issue in the world. So many animals die because they were neglected by their owners. This issue is important to me because I love animals and it is unfair for animals to be treated bad. Animals have needs and feelings too.

I made the dog skinny and showing its ribs because starving animals is one of the many ways they are neglected. I wrote have a heart to symbolize how sad of an issue this is and how the only way we can stop animal cruelty is to have a heart.
The media I used: colored pencils and sharpie.

The way you illustrated the dog is so realistic! I really love the use of colored pencils in your hexagon also.


I like your fence.

    I teach with Emily Cook in a Chicago suburban school. While my students have learned about global issues in the past, this project allowed them to see that these are not problems that people in other places in the world have to deal with, but rather, that these are world problems, and since we all have a civic responsibility to the world, these are our problems too.
