How I Use It
This website is great for students to work independently at home and also during a break from a class lesson. FreeRice can improve their vocabulary, math, geography, and even foreign language skills. There a lot of opportunity for teachers to encourage students to use FreeRice as a form of improvement and fun rather than a homework assignment. It helps them learn about the bigger picture and that their education can help change the world.
My Take
I love the concept of freerice.com. It connects learning to social change by using a word or a mathematical equation to fill up a bowl of rice to help prevent global hunger.
