Friday Fun: Vocabulary & Free Rice Too

Are you one of those people who always enjoy the Word Power™ feature in Reader’s Digest? Did you always enjoy flash cards? Trivia games? Well, check this out:

Boost your vocabulary while making donations of rice through the World Food Programme at the Free Rice web site. You’ll be given a series of words, with four possible meanings for each. If you click the correct meaning, 10 grains of rice are donated! It’s that simple.

Change it up! You can select subjects (in the categories humanities, math, English, chemistry, geography, languages, sciences, and even SAT test prep) for other options like multiplication, human anatomy, chemical symbols, literature; foreign language vocabulary, countries on a map, and more.

    Thanks for the reminder! I used this site from time to time in the past but didn’t know it was still around! I will have to spend some time on it again!
