Get group thinking about different sides of an issue. Helps with decision making or understanding complex problems.

Group Size


Set Up



Divide the group in half, and have them line up facing each other with the facilitator at the head of the line. Ask once side of the group to argue in favor of an issue and the other to argue opposed to an issue. After about 10 min (or when the groups run out of arguments) switch, and now they each have to take the opposite side of the issue.

Examples of good snap debate questions: - we should have a policy prohibiting x - no one should be allowed to x - X is our responsibility



Award arbitrary points like on 'Whose Line is it Anyway?' - the show where everything's made up and the points don't matter.
