Week 5 – PEEL Practice


Debate Mate Juniors/Explorers

In Lesson 5, we took part in our first full debate! We used all of the skills we have learnt so far including PEEL, Rebuttal and Points of Information.

We debated the motion “Humans should not cut down trees” which links to the topic Environment.

To practice our PEEL speeches further, have a go at creating a PEEL speech for the motion “Everyone should look after the environment”.

Below is a speech sheet to help, you can copy this out on your own special sheet:

Challenge: Have a think about why someone might disagree with “Everyone should look after the environment”. Is there anyone that does not have to look after the environment? Should some people look after it more than others?
