6th Grade Battle of the Books

Participate in our B.o.B contest through WEMTA!

What is Battle of the Books?

Battle of the Books is a chance to read selected books from a provided book list, answer questions about the books, and compete with other schools around the state to see how well you know your books!


Teams consist of four students in 6th grade. If only four students sign up, we will only have one team; if more than four students sign up, we will have a local contest at our school to see which team of four scores the highest to become our final team.


The final team competes online against other teams in the state during the week of February 24-February 28th.


Teams will meet in the library at 7:30 (dates will be posted at the beginning of each month) in the morning to discuss what's been going on in the books, to answer practice questions, and to have fun celebrating reading!
