Some of you may have heard of Freerice.com but others may not. FreeRice is a really neat site. It asks you questions about vocabulary and if you answer it right, the UN donates 20 grains of rice to help end world hunger. The more questions you get correct, the more rice you earn! If you miss a lot of the vocab words, the level will drop down so the words are easier. So basically, this site helps feed the needy and helps you with your vocab (think about the SAT and other tests!!!)

Here's an example:

putrescence means:
-component
- universe
-rottenness
-friend

Try it out! Once you get bored, you can simply close out the page and the rice is automatically donated!

Damnit. I got to 41, and then got raped back down to like 35.

That's a pretty cool idea though.
