Childhood Obesity: Public Service Announcement: A Lesson


Currently I am taking courses to upgrade my ECE Early Childhood Education degree.  One of the courses I recently finished was Human Anatomy.  It was a very difficult course to say the least.  Some of my classmates even asked doctors, nurses and specialists on the human body about what was taught in the course and they all said that it was at a level course for medical students not teachers.  My little rant for the day.  But I survived it and so did many of my classmates.

However there was one aspect of the course that appealed to my creative side.  Within a group we had to create a public service announcement on a topic the professor assigns us.  My group was assigned Childhood Obesity, not an easy topic but we rose to the challenge.  One of my group members knew I have an artistic background and she suggested that we create a comic about a child presenting a health presentation on childhood obesity.  The other group member agreed and I was up for the challenge, so we moved forward. 

I received permission from the other group members to post their names and the results of the endeavor are below.  We all worked on the story line and I want to acknowledge their work.  I drew the illustrations and the group members (myself included) are in the story as teachers as cartoon caricatures. 

We all loved the results and I am happy to say we got an A for our final grade.  Many have mentioned that it is both aesthetically pleasing and informative.  Childhood obesity is a concern in our modern society and the more we get the word out, the quicker we can address this growing issue. 

I hope you enjoy Childhood Obesity: Public Service Announcement: A Lesson.
