Free Rice

Posted on December 22, 2012. Filed under: General Information | Tags: , |

logoLooking for something to do over the winter break?  How about visiting the website called Free Rice?

What is Free Rice?
Free Rice is a non-profit website from the United Nations World Food Programme.  The two goals of the organization are to provide a free education to everyone and to help end world hunger.

How does it work?
For every vocabulary question on the website that you answer correctly, 10 grains of rice are donated through the World Food Programme to help end hunger.

Why should you do it?
You will be improving and practicing your own vocabulary skills while you are also doing a good thing for someone else.  It’s a win-win situation.

I have tried this game for a few minutes and already donated exactly 500 grains of rice. Some of the words seem to repeat, though. It’s great that I can adjust the level of vocabulary.

Yeah it is a really great website! My family has been playing on it for years. Rudra I’m pretty sure it only repeats words you have gotten wrong previously so maybe that is why it was repeating.

Really good website for helping others. There are also other subject like math and geography. 🙂

Wow! There’s actually some vocabulary in here that I’ve never seen before. This is really fun. 😀

On a completely different topic, Miss Morris, where do we find the preposition lesson we have to do by 1/8?

Thank you!
