Mock Debate in 5th Grade

On Wednesday, February 24, the students in Mrs. McIlvain’s class held a mock debate. After reading a Scholastic New article about Tyler Armstrong, a 12 year-old who wants to climb Mt. Everest, students had strong opinions about whether or not this was a wise idea. The students formed 2 teams, argued their points and countered the points of their opponents. The winner was The Opposition Team! All in all, students showed off their logical reasoning and argumentative skills in our heated debate.
