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.
