Word Portraits of Fourth-Grade Students Around the World

Tales of fourth-grade somethings… This is an inspirational, awe-inspiring, and sometimes contemplative look at the dreams of fourth-graders from around the world. Beautifully done.

Flavorwire

Do you remember what you were like in fourth grade, what you hoped for? Perhaps this collection of photographs by Judy Gelles (via Faith is Torment) will refresh your memory. Gelles asked fourth-grade students in the United States, India, and China three questions: With whom do you live? What do you wish for? What do you worry about? The students’ answers vary greatly, shedding light on their geographic and economic differences, but the underlying similarity among all the children is staggeringly present. After the jump, take a look at Gelles’ images and learn about how these kids view the world by reading their own words.
