My hexagon touched on the issue of world hunger. This is a very big issue in the world today. Every 5 seconds a child dies of starvation. While we all have plenty food to eat, 925 million people are starving in poor places such as Africa and Somalia. Organizations are getting food over to places where there is not a lot of food. Websites such freepoverty.com and freerice.com are donating rice and water to these places as well. Other organizations are, UNICEF, bread.org and action against hunger. I drew one African child dead on the ground and one other child sitting down crying and starving. The starving child is looking down on other kids who are enjoying eating food and are having a great time. I drew this to show how unfair it is i places such as Africa since we all have plenty to eat while other kids have nothing.

I like the letters at the top they really caught my eye and they seemed interesting. I like the c picture if the man sitting and he is crying. It really shows that he is unhappy. GOOD JOB!

    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.
