Who’s the Best: Spiders or Snakes?

With the U.S. presidential debates in full swing, we think there‘s no time like the present to learn the essence of debating.  Kids can get ready for the Sunday session by listening to "Smash Boom Best," a debate podcast for kids (we will be reviewing snakes vs spiders, but here is a list of all episodes).

This Sunday, we explore how to make strong arguments and how to spot ”logical fallacies” — arguments that do not make sense when you rewind, slow them down and look closely.

Smash Boom Best has provided a handy list in this compilation. We will show arguments from the Simpsons show and the presidential/ vice presidential debates, and ask participants to explain what kind of argument is being used.
The Koolaboratory is using collaborative software, affordable classes, and high quality educational media, including the following:
We have set up a shared Google account to help us collaborate using various platforms and tools. If you're not already in the loop, please request access.

To ensure security we prefer to share information on (relatively) secure channels, such as WhatsApp, Signal or Telegram.
We have started making a Google Site:
for the kids to update themselves with photos and links.

Join and edit the site:

Do you want to learn how to draw better? We are simultaneously taking an affordable art course together called "The Art of Sketching: Transform Your Doodles into Art" on and showing each other our drawings.
In a neverending quest to find things for the kids to do to occupy their brains without screen time, we have found a list of kids podcasts for the kids to review.


We are using Pinterest to collaborate on image collections and to get ideas. Most recently we have used it to collect origami animal ideas for our future animal zoo, but we also have boards on art, design, and baking. Use the same KooLab Google account to login.

Join us on Miro! We are making collaborative boards with mind-maps, digital post-it notes, icons, and photos from the web.
