Barbara from Aitkin called in to talk words and told us about a really interesting website called FREE RICE. Essentially you are quizzed on vocabulary and for each word you get right the U.N. donates 20 grains of rice to the U.N. World Food Program to end hunger. It's harder than you'd think - the last one I did and got right was "sagacious" - I picked "wise". So let's all improve our vocabulary and donate some rice to hunger relief! And post your favorite/least favorite words here.
Here are some of the words people called in that they love:
