Social Studies Independent Study Project Suggestion

Spend some time examining the photos in Time Magazine's photo gallery:

Now, visit the NPR link below. Read the story. Look at the photographs. If your computer allows, listen to one of the stories (links are on the left).

Finally, watch the CBS video "Blessings in a Backpack."



In your comments, discuss the photographs, videos and stories you examined. What did you learn about world hunger you didn't know before? What surprised you most of all? What are people doing about world hunger? What are you going to do?
What can you do?
Do you have a few minutes? Play the game. Feed some hungry people.
