This is an extremely popular, easy, no prep for you extra credit assignment for English class (and math, science, if you edit!) that uses the website Freerice.com. It is also SAT-prep friendly.
This website, Freerice.com, donates 10 grains of rice for every correct answer given on their multiple choice quizzes. Each year, I give students the opportunity to increase their project/test grades by completing as many vocabulary/grammar/SAT questions as they can in exchange for % points on their assignments!
