Free Rice

This website has become well known for some time now but it is one I still love to revisit!  Free Rice is a vocabulary game that instinctively adjusts its difficulty level based on how well you are answering each question.  Don't forget that by playing the game you are also donating 10 grains of rice with each correct answer.  It offers a great challenge to almost any user and offers a chance to facilitate conversations about social awareness.  Win Win!
