There are 15 million children that die every year due to starvation alone. To create this hexagon project I used; picture from the internet, construction paper, and a sharpie. My pictures are either of happy or sad kids in Africa . One picture shows a logo for Feed my Starving Children. Feed ,y Starving Children is an organization that helps out kids all over the world . This isn’t the only organization but probably one of the ones that has had the biggest impact in the world.  This issue has been around way before 1985. Even with all the organizations that exist, the problem still occurs.

                On my hexagon it includes a quote and a statistic as well. The quote says “If you can’t feed a hundred people then feed just one.”- Mother Teresa. Which basically means to always help the hungry. And the statistic says “ Every year 15 million children die from starvation.” This problem disgusts me to know that kids out there have hardly any fat on their bodies.  When I’m older or maybe soon I would love to help out the kids in need and try to put a stop to this occurring problem. I hope to see this problem decrease within my lifetime and I would like to at least have been apart of it to resolve it.

Your pictures displayed your issue very well, and it looked very put together.

    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.
