The Power Of Words…
Courtesy of Auntie Beeb I’ve just heard of a great site which combines my love of vocabulary with a means of doing good. FreeRice.com does exactly what it says on the tin… it gives away free rice every time you can give the correct definition of a word. Er, that’s it!
I just wish they did a slightly easier version (maybe for 5 grains a word) that I could use with my pupils… but perhaps I’m doing them a disservice. I’ll be telling them about it tomorrow and lets hope they can start making a difference.
For real interest, have a look at the totals page… There can’t be many places where you can see the viral power of the internet… I only wish I had the skills to interpret what it shows and how to apply it to education.
