I created this project for a week-long debate with my fifth grade class. This power point will walk you and the class through each day of the week. The power point includes an explanation of a debate, expectations for the project, a grading rubric, group roles, and tips throughout the week. This project can easily be linked to both Informational Text and Speaking & Listening Standards for upper elementary grades.
To use this in your classroom, I would recommend reading through the power point firs. Then, decide on options for debate topics. I also created a graphic organizer for recording the research. Stay tuned- they will be for sale later!
