Welcome to the Modern Typewriter, a daily blog to discuss topics that can’t be answered easily, or are just some fun topics! Today is June 26th, 2008, I’m Rochester, and I’m here to tell you about a game called Free Rice.
Free Rice is a vocabulary game dedicated to giving rice to poverty-struck places.
They give you a word, and you have to find the synonym of that word in the list they give you. The list will contain four words, and the synonym will be in the list.
If you choose the correct synonym, you earn twenty grains of rice to donate. You can keep going on and on, donating rice if you wanted to.
“I think that the Free Rice game is a really fun game and it’s addicting too.” says Royce, a writer at the Modern Typewriter. “I played for about two hours and donated over 4000 grains of rice.”
“It’s a good way to get kids to understand that the world needs to help out the poverty-struck places. I’m glad that the creator created this game.” says Melanie, another writer at the Modern Typewriter.
The website is located at freerice.com
“I just love to play. It advances my vocabulary skills, and I’m helping the world, it’s just wonderful.” says an anonymous viewer.
Remember, I’m Rochester, and this is the Modern Typewriter, OUT!
