Free Rice, Student Blogging Challenge #4

April 1, 2012 by Ethan · 15 Comments · Games, Learning, Student Blogging Challenge

How I participated in the forth challenge. I went to Free Rice and  I got 2160 grains of rice. Below is how many I got today and how much I got in all.  When I do this I feel very good because I am 

making a difference  in life. I like how young kids (like me) can make a difference in life. I love Free Rice because it helps others and ourselves learn.



Have you been to Free Rice?

How many grains have you gotten?

Do you feel like you making a difference n life?

    Hi Ethan,
    I really love Free Rice as a way to learn vocabulary and help others. I don’t know what the most grains I have ever earned is, but I have students in my class also playing and earning rice.
    I love your blog and look forward to reading more!

    Hello Ethan,

    I’m glad you made a decision to make a difference in the world. Free Rice is a wonderful way to do that. It also makes the world a better and smaller place because you know you’ve done something for someone else.

    Yes, I have been to Free Rice and I earned 3000 grains of rice. I think I’m making a difference because I’m giving rice to poor people by Free Rice. Also I donate a lot of cloths to the poor, socks and shoes.
