Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books

This quiz show-style competition encourages students to read a variety of books, including biographies, fantasy and historical fiction. Each year 10 titles are selected by teachers for the upcoming competition. Students must read at least 5 of the 10 titles between November and March. After reading each book, students must write 10 questions about the book to be used in practice battles. At the end of Spring Break, students will be put into teams of 4-6 students based on the books they have read. Teams will then compete to determine the Riverdale Battle of the Books Champions in April.

The 5th grade champions will get to compete in the Adams12 Five Star District Battle of the Books shortly afterwards.

Battle of the Books is introduced to all 4th and 5th graders during school hours and students take home a permission slip that they return if they are interested. Details about club meeting days will come soon.
