Cupcake Debate

Is making a cupcake art?  This was the BIG debate for the last few minutes of class for some classes, when time allowed.  I did this debate (at some level) with grades 1st through 5th.  It was a lot of fun.  Turns out kids of all ages love to debate (or at least the loud ones do :)).

Above is 3rd grade debating the topic. 

Above is the 5th grade debate

I know some teachers took this and ran with the conversation more in their homeroom class.  I could also see that there are some teachers who use debate in their homeroom class on a regular basis.  These were the classes that started their statements with, "I strongly believe...".  Anyway, I started to post more youtubes on debatable subject matter because my monsters are coming to an end and I need a new warm up.  I will be posting on what projects I'm doing in the upcoming weeks.
