  • Battle of the Books


    What IS Battle of the Books?

    Battle of the Books is a fun competition for any student in 3rd - 5th grades. 

    Students read books from a set book list and compete in a schoolwide battle to determine which four students will represent Earhart at the USD 259 Battle! 
    These four students will compete against other students from participating schools to answer questions about the books from the list.  In order to be successful, students must know the book title, details about the story or subject, the characters, and the author. 

    How do I get on the team?

    First, you have to read the books on the list.  NOW is a great time to begin!  The list is available from the links below or from your library, so be sure to get a copy.  

    Next, read those books and turn in your book slips! 

    Last, participate in the school battle in December! 

    If you win a spot on the Earhart Battle of the Books team, you will go the official Battle of the Books competition!
