How I Use It
I use this website as a station during our UNICEF Day. Our students participate in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. UNICEF Day includes integrated lessons that help our students understand UNICEF's mission. As an ELA teacher, I use this website to include fun vocabulary practice and to allow my students to feel empowered. They love that they are donating rice as they answer questions correctly.
My Take
I think that this is a great resource for extra practice or differentiation. It also provides students wit ha challenging activity that could be used as a "sponge" for those who finish work early. It is great that students are able to do something for a good cause as they are learning. Student can adjust the challenge level and they can actually see themselves earning rice for those in need. Engaging and fun!
