The topic my hexagon encompasses is nature conservation.  Conserving nature is important because we depend on it in our lives.  If we don’t help to protect it, it will vanish and so will us.  My hexagon portrayed three major problems that are occurring all over the world: water pollution, deforestation, and landfills.  All three of these issues are ruining nature’s serenity and beauty.  I used different types of paper, colored pencils, markers, and a computer image to make my hexagon. In the center is the Earth and a big recycling symbol behind it to show one way we could solve this problem. Nature conservation is important to me because I love the outdoors, and I don’t want it to become a big trash bin.  We all have to live here and generations to come must also, so let’s keep it the way we found it: beautiful and innocent.

I liked the recycling sign. And I like that they used a lot of the earth colors.

I really liked your hexagon. It's cool how you used the cotton ball thing. Good job.

I like that you illustrated the three areas of concern under the topic of pollution. It makes a very clear and powerful statement for us all to think about.

    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.
