     In the world, many families don’t have enough food for their whole family. There is 870 million people in Africa and 578 million people living in Asia and the pacific that don’t have enough to eat. On my hexagon, I drew continents Africa and Asia because thats where starvation is mostly common. It is important to me because I see people that stuff themselves with food they don’t care that people in this world have nothing to eat.
     The media I used on my  hexagon was markers and colored pencil.On my hexagon I drew the world on a plate so symbolize that the world has people that have an empty plate everyday and that we should do something to fill this empty plate.

I thought that making the earth into a plate was really cool. It made me think about how families or people all over the world are suffering, and how world hunger is affecting us today.

    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.
