FreePoverty is a new site similar to FreeRice. Students go through a geography quiz, with correct answers raising money for water donations to developing countries. Currently, I haven’t seen any third party validation of the site, so I’m not sure if it is legit or not. The quiz is pretty fun, though. They give you the name of a city or landmark, and you try to place it onto a world map. The closer you are, the more cups of water are donated. If it’s for real, I would certainly recommend it to my students as a way to practice country names.
