Free Rice … New Year’s Resolution

Happy 2008 to everyone!

Here is a great web-site that Mr. Thakkar forwarded to me before the vacation, but that I somehow overlooked. FreeRice.com is associated with the United Nations World Hunger Program. Through a deal with advertisers the site allows people to play a vocabulary game that donates 20 grains of rice per correct answer. I found the words to be SAT level for the most part, so I recommend it for students that want to brush up on their vocab. Check it out for yourself, and help to promote it if you find it worthwhile. Instead of sending money to a charity, students could make a new year’s resolution to donate 7,200 grains of rice per week (about 1 cup, according to WikiAnswers). See you all too soon.
