I have already written a number of articles about great Purple Mash resources on this site and the Purple Mash Debate Projects is yet another excellent resource from the same stable.
The webpage is host to great new debates that are topical and, most definitely, worthy of further exploration.
“Purple Mash is an ever growing online creative space especially for learners aged 3 – 11. This award winning site is filled with hundreds of fun educational activities in the form of projects, games, apps and tools. Also, being hosted online, you can access Purple Mash and your saved online files wherever you are and whenever you wish.”
The various Purple Mash Debate Projects provided on the site are:
- Air Travel Debate
- Animal Testing Debate
- Badger Culling Debate
- Football Doctor Debate
- Circus Animal Debate
- Homework Debate
- Recycling Debate
- TV Talent Show Debate
- Social Networking Debate
- School Uniform Debate
- Zoo Animal Debate
I can imagine these fitting easily into a great number of themes; they could also be great literacy projects on their own. They are set out pictorially with user-friendly word banks and moveable icons. Why not give them a try?
Non-subscribers are allowed two minutes to look at the resources. For more information visit Purple Mash to see if they would be a useful resource for your school or class.
