Week 7 – The Intelligent Alien

Debate Mate Explorers

In Lesson 7, we learnt how to expand our explanations during our PEEL speeches.

During our lesson, we practiced explaining the simple things in as much detail as possible. By always explaining ourselves fully, our arguments will be stronger in debates! We thought about how we would explain things to an intelligent alien.

Have a look at the Intelligent Alien sheet below. Can you fill in the six arrows with your own ideas about what makes a good explanation? What should you include when explaining your point?
