How I Use It
Straight up as a 10 minute basic skills edu-tainment, or as a "Let's talk about food and hunger" discussion starter.
My Take
My fifth graders eat up most chances for online games and skill practice, and appreciate the added angle of contributing to a compassionate goal-however small each grain of rice.
