A colleague sent me this neat site that promotes learning and feeds people at the same time! I have to confess I probably spent a little too much time reviewing my high school french vocabulary but it's hard to stop when each correct answer donates another 10 grains of rice to the United Nations Food Program!

FreeRice is a great way to keep your kids' brains sharp over the summer months. The quizzes are very easy to use and I like how they return to questions you previously answered wrong to make sure the word or concept has stuck. Lots of subjects to choose from - vocabulary, science, geography, and math.

Looking for other ways to keep kids' minds active this summer? Check out this article -Summer Amnesia: Avoid the Brain Drain.
