Battle of the Books
This is a book challenge competition for fourth and fifth grade students. The students form a four person team from their grade. Each team member must read at least five books from the current Young Hoosier Award list and become an "expert" on those books they have read. In May, during set times, grade level teams "battle" with each other. The battles include 20 questions. The winning teamwill advance to the next level.
Check back later in the semester as more information will be coming about Battle of the Books which takes place in May. Tons of fun!
