Ultimate Book Challenge

2017-2018 Ultimate Book Challenge
(Used to be called  Battle of the Books) 
What is it?
The Ultimate Book Challenge is a reading competition designed to improve reading and comprehension while also building enthusiasm for reading.  Students will compete individually and in teams to show their knowledge of 10 preselected books. 
Who can compete?
Students in 3rd grade, 4th grade, and 5th grade are eligible for the competition.
How will teams be formed?
In November, all participants who have read at least three UBC books will take a quiz over the ALL the books.  This gives students exposure to the type of questions that they will see in the competition and allow them to make a decision of whether they are committed to continue reading and become a team member.  Students that choose to continue will be placed on a team.  Teams will be made up of 6 students.
When is the school-wide battle?
In December, the student teams at Peterson will compete against each other to determine our Peterson Champion Team.
When is the district battle?
In January, our Peterson UBC team will compete against the other elementary schools'  teams to declare a district winner.
