I found out about this game at school today. I hope you and your kids might have some fun while learning.
For each correct answer you get, the sponsors will donate 10 grains of rice to eradicate hunger in the world.

Below are words from their site:

About FreeRice

FreeRice is a non-profit website run by the United Nations World Food Program. Our partner is the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University.

FreeRice has two goals:

Provide education to everyone for free.
Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.
This is made possible by the generosity of the sponsors who advertise on this site.

Whether you are CEO of a large corporation or a street child in a poor country, improving your education can improve your life. It is a great investment in yourself.

Perhaps even greater is the investment your donated rice makes in hungry human beings, enabling them to function and be productive. Somewhere in the world, a person is eating rice that you helped provide. Thank you.

The subjects you can choose to learn about are:

ART

Famous Paintings
CHEMISTRY

Chemical Symbols (Basic)
Chemical Symbols (Full List)
ENGLISH

English Grammar
English Vocabulary
GEOGRAPHY

Identify Countries on the Map
