Debate kit - food hygiene

This debate kit asks the question: 'Is it safer to eat at home or out at a restaurant?', which allows students to consider communicable diseases are how to reduce and prevent their spread.  Pupils take on a given role so that they look at the question from a certain point of view.  They share their character's role with the class which then leads to a class discussion. The debate takes place in rounds in which more information, issues and opinions are heard so pupils are given the opportunity to re-evaluate their initial thoughts on the question.

There is a full set of teacher guidance notes on how to run the debate and digital versions of the debate cards and links to supporting resources can be found on the I'm a scientist website.
