Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books is a fun reading enrichment opportunity open to all Black Hawk students seeking an extra reading challenge. Students will work in teams of 3 to 5 and read the 21 books from the Battle list. (They can divide the titles up so each student on the team reads around 5 books by the end of the year.)

We will meet about once a month to discuss a book from the list. In June, the teams will meet to take the group trivia quiz or Battle that will have questions from all 21 books. Groups are encouraged to come up with a team name and a costume idea for the day of the group trivia quiz. Fun prizes for the Battle and best team costume will be awarded!
