Finding Solutions to Hunger is a project in which students of all ages begin to understand the root causes of hunger in the world and to take meaningful action for its elimination. Aligned with the second UN Sustainable Development Goal, to end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture, students of all ages, grade levels and English speaking/writing skills bring their strengths and ideas into collaboration with another to find solutions.
Partnered with KIDS (http://www.kidscanmakeadifference.org), an educational program for students, teachers are provided with an optional series of adaptable activities and lessons. They are also supported with resources to create independent lessons of their own that best address the learning needs of their students.
To take action against hunger in the world, through understanding and action, is the ultimate goal. Building a network of collaboration, shared knowledge and service happens over time as students study the following concepts, among others, through reading, artistic expression, digital media and writing and reflecting.
