Oh what a way to spark debate, to generate some giggles, and some serious thinking. We all love a good ‘This or That’ question no matter how it’s phrased. So take some time out of your next class or your next activity to see what answers and explanations the kids have for their choices.

So let’s see what different kinds of This or That questions we can ask… cause there are plenty of different categories to choose from. Perhaps you want to encourage debate, maybe the point is just to have a little fun. We also have a few that will definitely have both you and the kids wondering which option you prefer cause sometimes the best questions are the toughest ones. 

We also have a great template you can use as inspiration. So feel free to add it to your presentations by hitting 'Get template' once logged in to your account. If you need to sign up first, don't worry it just takes a few quick clicks and some typing.
