How I Use It
My students and I LOVE Free Rice! It is great practice for them in numerous areas from Spanish, basic math, geography and art. I like to use it as a warm up challenge activity to see who can earn the most rice in a set amount of time. Usually 5 minutes. It has also been a great help practicing for the yearly Geography Bee.
Free Rice is one of those wonderfully all to rare everyone wins scenarios. Students get practice in numerous academic topic areas while increasing social consciousness by earning rice based points for much needed donations to the World Food Programme.
