Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books is an extracurricular ongoing book club where students in grades 3-6 read 8-10 books chosen by a select group of teacher-librarians.  In January the students have a mini school battle where they answer questions about the books.  The 4 students who answer the most questions correctly become the battle team for our school, with 4 team members.  They go to the district battle at the end of April where they battle against other schools.  There is a 3/4 team, a grade 5 team and a grade 6 team.
