Silas Wood's Literacy Support classes visited the Canstruction Long Island Exhibit on November 9th, at the RXR building in Uniondale.

The students read the text Canstruction Creations during classes and learned about the process in which the structures are planned out and then brought to life. The text went into detail about how each can structure is thoughtfully designed, and how detailed the execution is, even down to the colors of the labels used. After reading the text, the children were very interested and excited to go see the actual structures.

Canstruction Long Island Exhibit was a great way for the students to see this magnificent charity brought to life. The exhibit had thirteen structures spread out throughout the lobby. Students visited each structure and had to answer questions about the creations. These questions got the students thinking about hunger around the world, and even in our own neighborhood. The students were asked to make the connection about how this exhibit helped to spread the word about ending world hunger and how they can also help.

At the end of the day, they learned how every one of us can help, either big or small. It can be with food collection, distribution, or even social media to spread the word about hunger. They learned that even if they can’t physically contribute, there are many ways to spread the word and to get other people involved. The Canstruction exhibit was a great way to teach the students about being good role models. Next year, they want to join the cause to end world hunger.
