Teacher Review For Free Rice

I have used Free Rice several times in my classroom to help them review their Spanish. Some parts of the program have been really helpful and others not so much. I have had to play around with it to find the right level to use with my students.

How I Use It
I have used this product working as a whole class to guess the answers and add more rice to the bowl. I have used this mostly as an attention grabber or a review for the last 5 or so minutes of class if we have some extra time. I think that there are several great things about this product, you just have to find the right level of learning for your classroom and for your students.
My Take
Over all I think that this is a good website and one that could assist several classes with learning new or reviewing old material. I also really praise this product for bring world hunger to the attention of young students. It is a great way to talk about the need for assistance all around the work.
