Battle of the Books is an optional activity for 4th and 5th graders who enjoy both reading and competition. Students form their own teams of 4 students from within their grade level, and sign a written contract to verify their participation. Books used for this program are the nominated titles for the YHBA: Intermediate list for grades 4-6. All 4th and 5th grade classes are given information about the Young Hoosier Books and Battle of the Books during their media time. Teams are asked to have their contracts signed in January and battles will take place in May. We will have a final battle between the winning 4th and 5th grade teams. Good luck to all who participate!
Start reading all the YHBA books that you can so you are ready to battle!
