_Global Warming Payton C.

Media used: Pictures off the internet-collage

         My issue, global warming, is significant because it is impacting nature all around the world. It occurs in the oceans and on land. I put polar bears and penguins on ice on my hexagon because the ice is melting and they have nowhere to go. I put an image of an animal drinking from a very small stream because drought is soaking up the water. I also have a tree stump with a bunch of cracks in the ground because of the drought. Lastly there is ice melting so it all is falling in my final picture.

         This is important to me because I love animals and our earth. Global warming is significant to the world because we only have one earth. We can’t destroy earth. We have to preserve it.

I like how you made your hexagon with almost all of the global warming going on.

    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.
