Debate games are fun to play on those days when you finish your lesson early, when you are in-between lessons, or right before school holidays. These two debate games provide much laughter and insight, building a wonderful classroom collegiality. Play them for ten minutes or you could also keep team debate games going throughout the semester.
Each year, these debate games are listed among students' favorite and most memorable activities. Administrators and teachers love them as they reinforce critical thinking, implement rigor, Common Core, and practice with argument.
Complete directions and rules are provided for two debate games- the three-headed debate and the two-sided debate. Two note taking devices are included as well as a topics list.
