Doing math and helping feed the world are two projects that don’t normally work together but in Courtney Barrington’s third grade class at Cline Elementary, the two worked well together. Barrington introduced a really fun learning website called Free Rice to her third grade students this past week when they started memorization of multiplication facts. The website is a site that has many different topics to practice learning for students. For every answer that is right, 10 grains of rice are donated through the World Food Program to help end world hunger. Students find it fun to see the rice accumulate from correct answers.
