Free Rice: Play online for rice to feed the poor!

This has got to be one of the most distracting (yet conflicting) sites ever! You get distracted because you are so into answering the quizzes.. then you feel bad because you are not working.. and then you remember you are actually feeding the hungry by donating rice! So conflicting (just ask @m_ager!). Go to
to have a go!
How it works is, you basically go to the site and start answering questions. Each question you get right, you earn 10 grains of rice to donate to the World Food Programme to help end hunger! (don't worry, rice does not get taken away from starving kids if you get a question wrong!). Now that does not seem like a lot of rice, but it soon starts adding up as you get more and more addicted to the quizzes!
The home page takes you to the 'English Vocabulary' quizzes, but there are more subjects to choose from! If you go to:
you can choose from the following categories:
-Famous Paintings
-World Hunger
-Multiplication Table
-Basic Math (Pre-Algebra)
-Human Anatomy
-English Vocabulary
-English Grammar
-Chemical Symbols (Full List)
-Chemical Symbols (Basic)
-World Landmarks
-Identify Countries on the Map
-World Capitals
-Flags of the world
(there is also a section for American SAT questions:
This is an amazing site for teachers to use as a time filler in class too (I know the upper primary and the secondary sections of my school use this site).
Enjoy the fulfilling and meaningful distraction!
