Free Rice Game – Vocabulary And Charity

Free Rice Game – Vocabulary And Charity

On the Free Rice website, you answer English vocabulary questions, and for each correct answer, ten grains of rice will be donated to help end hunger. The difficulty of the questions will be adjusted depending on if you give correct answers or not, so this charity game is equally suitable for children and for grown-ups.

Subjects include: English vocab, chemistry, geography, foreign languages, math and art.

FreeRice is a non-profit website run by the United Nations World Food Program.

    The concept is really great. But I’m curious how does this work? How do they finance the rice they’re donating?

    This is a wonderful site.It teaches so much more than vocabulary.

  • Sarah Prowe says:

    This is great. When you answered the vocabulary correctly, they will “donate rice to the UN World Food Program to help end hunger”. This will really help those people in need

  • Daphne says:

    This is nice! This will really help the charity each time you have a correct answer

    What a great way to expand your vocabulary while helping others. This concept brings about a new field of study in gaming. Gaming for achievements to extend the amount of time that one plays a game. Usually this is done to generate money for a corporation, I’m glad to see that it has now been extended to a charitable oraganization! This is great for classrooms and teaching.
