Free Rice (December 4)

Free Rice is an irresistible online vocabulary game for all skill levels. With every correct answer, players earn grains of rice that are donated through the World Food Programme. Visiting the Free Rice site lets young children test their words skills and give back -- both at the same time!

Talk to your child

  • What does it feel like to be hungry?
  • Why do you think some people don’t have enough food to eat?

Video to share: The World Food Programme, which runs the Free Rice game, gave Molly, a 12-year-old living in Nairobi, a small video camera. Share the film she made with your children. Talk about the similarities among children from all over the world. Maybe you’ll be inspired to make your own film to send to Molly!
