FreeRice.com


I am a proud and frequent follower of The Pioneer Woman's home, confessions, cooking, tasty kitchen and photography but don't often stop in to her "Homeschooling" section, however, this morning the heading "FreeRice.com" caught my attention. Freerice.com is a trivia website (it's free and you dont even have to set up an account!) where for every question you get right they donate 10 grains of rice to the United Nations World Food Program.


I had some fun on the site this morning and quickly racked up 1300 grains of rice! And (I like to think) I might have walked away a little smarter for playing to boot! The questions get progressively harder as you go along and you can select from different "subjects" like vocabulary, geography, math and even art!


Give it a shot! It's fun!!
