Activity Description

In this activity, advanced learners of ESL choose the sentence that is grammatically correct. For each answer they get right, FreeRice donates 10 grains of rice through the World Food Program to help end hunger. Use this fun and engaging site when you have ended a lesson early or as a reward for your students.

Preparation

  1. Review the site to make sure your students are ready for the high-level grammar and punctuation questions included on the site.

  2. If your students enjoy this site, you may want to help them create a free account, which allows them to track how much rice they have helped donate. They can also log in with a Facebook account if they have one.
