I have used Free Rice several times in my classroom to help them review their Spanish. Some parts of the program have been really helpful and others not so much. I have had to play around with it to find the right level to use with my students.
Over all I think that this is a good website and one that could assist several classes with learning new or reviewing old material. I also really praise this product for bring world hunger to the attention of young students. It is a great way to talk about the need for assistance all around the work.
How I Use It
I have used this product working as a whole class to guess the answers and add more rice to the bowl. I have used this mostly as an attention grabber or a review for the last 5 or so minutes of class if we have some extra time. I think that there are several great things about this product, you just have to find the right level of learning for your classroom and for your students.
