 My hexagon is raising awareness about endangered animal species.  I use the African Penguin as one example of animals that may become extinct if we do not protect them.    Some of the leading causes of death of African Penguins are poaching and pollution,  two activities that we can stop if we all work together.  More law enforcement is needed to protect the African Penguin and other endangered species around the world.   Pollution could be controlled by doing little things such as turning off lights when you are not in a room, and pick up trash you see.  By doing just a few simple things, we can help save species that are endangered around the world, just like the African Penguin.

I never knew about how endangered this species was! It's great that you're spreading the word about these animals.

    I teach middle school art in the suburban Chicago area. This project has allowed my eighth grade students to confront global issues and to have an artistic voice that expresses their concerns and passions that one day just might change the world.

    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.
