Debates and KidVention

Today we went to Kid Vention in Henderson for a field trip. 

It was a wonderful experience and I'm so impressed with how our fifth graders did! 
They were polite and respectful listeners.

On Monday, we worked on debates:

Our class had the topic: "Should recess be shortened to allow more time to eat?".  We made a pro's and con's list and students worked in teams to write their arguments.  Each side then picked two speakers to represent their side.

We had a practice debate before today's real one, after our field trip.

I'm proud of how well they did!
