1.02 billion people in the world are hungry. Every year, 15 million children die of starvation. Organizations that are helping are: Cross-Cultural Solutions, Feed the Children, UNICEF, A Day of Hope, CARE, Walk Against Hunger, and Feed My Starving Children. Also, a single person can help by contributing to food drives, soup kitchens, and you can donate money. This topic is important to me because I don’t think this many children should die every year. It’s good that many organizations are helping, but more people need to help out or else starvation will never get better.

I put rice on my hexagon because that’s what people can donate, or send because it can be packaged. I cut out a hand on construction paper because it symbolizes that kids reach out for food. For my background, I colored it yellow; I did that because tons of people hardly eat, and therefore all they have in their stomachs is bile. All of the text support I used are ways everyone can help and ways to stop hunger.

I like how you put rice on your hexagon. It adds a cool texture.

I like how your hexagon did not only depict the problem, but also possible solutions to your issue. Nice 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.
