My Take
I introduced Free Rice to my English 10 and English 11 students, and they loved it. The website has expanded quite a bit from it's original game, allowing students to choose their starting level so that the questions were challenging enough to meet each individual student's needs. There is also an option to change languages and/or subjects making the site a valuable review tool for classes across the curriculum. The best part, my students felt empowered not only as they answered questions correctly, but also as they saw their "rice bowl" being filled to help people in disadvantaged countries.
