Freerice

Top Subjects:  Animals   Art/Architecture   Geography   Health   History   Math   Reading   Science
Resource:Freerice
Provider:World Food Programme
Summary:Age Range: 9-18 (Grades 4-12, with parental supervision). This ad-supported website offers you the opportunity to boost your vocabulary and help end world hunger.
Description:For each word you get correct in the online vocabulary quiz, 10 grains of rice are donated through the United Nations World Food Program to help feed the hungry. The best explanation of the concept comes directly from the website:
Freerice has two goals:
  1. Provide education to everyone for free.
  2. Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.
This is made possible by the sponsors who advertise on this site.

Freerice has a custom database containing thousands of words at varying degrees of difficulty. There are words appropriate for people just learning English and words that will challenge the most scholarly professors.

Freerice automatically adjusts to your level of vocabulary. It starts by giving you words at different levels of difficulty and then, based on how you do, assigns you an approximate starting level. You then determine a more exact level for yourself as you play. When you get a word wrong, you go to an easier level. When you get three words in a row right, you go to a harder level. This one-to-three ratio is best for keeping you at the “outer fringe” of your vocabulary, where learning can take place.

If you have more questions, check out the FAQs at the website. This is an ingeneous idea and it's lots of fun to participate.
