Blog entry Freerice "Class of the Week" - Mr L's World Studies Classes

23 November 2010

We know you’ve been waiting for this all week, so we’ll go ahead and tell you that this week’s Freerice "Class of the Week" has been awarded to Mr. L’s World Studies Classes!

If you take note of groups on Freerice, you'll no doubt have noticed these students by now. Since 5 September, Mr. Lefkowitz and his classes at South Medford High School have joined together to raise a grand total of 468,150 grains of rice!

As World Studies students, they’ve answered plenty of Geography questions and identified tons of countries –but they’re also showing their smarts in French and Famous Paintings too! According to Mr. Lefkowitz, his students are trying to “make a better world” by playing Freerice.

Together, they engage in “learning, acting and communicating” through the game—improving their skills and helping the world at the same time.

Want to be the class of the week?
Step 1: Make sure your class is registered as a group on Freerice—be sure to include the word “class,” “students,” or “school” in your group’s name.
Step 2: Create a crafty group description—tell us who you are and why your students love Freerice!
Step 3: Play, play, play!
