Dialectics for Kids: It may look like a janky relic from the 90s internet, but the site has some good, simple exercises and stories to help establish the concept. Literally teach your children with this site.

The Marxist Internet Archive has plenty of resources on dialectical materialism. This historical overview of dialectics would be a good place to start.

Finally, the video linked above is from the movie Half Nelson (2006), which provides an excellent summary of dialectics as well. It will also make you wish your history teacher was Ryan Gosling.
