SciTech Battle of the Books

Last week, families gathered after spending hours and hours of preparation time in anticipation of the SciTech Book Battle. Families sharpened their minds by reading five books: Where the Wild Things Are, Holes, Noggin, I am Malala, and Locomotion. They then gathered together in a battle of wits to compete for coveted Barnes and Noble Gift Cards to buy more books!

8th Grade students, created, planned and hosted the event as part of a project for their Communications class taught by Ms. Wendy Moore. In addition to reading all the books, students established the rules, created the questions, implemented the procedure and designed the PowerPoint.

The top three family teams to win were: 3rd Place for a $15 gift card, The Fitches, 2nd Place for a $25 gift card the Noodles, and for 1st Place and a $50 gift card – the Fantabulous Sparkling Readings. The focus of the night was on fun, laughter, high fives and a shared love of reading.

Look for next year’s Battle to be a Bigger Better Book Battle. In the words of one participant: “That was so much fun!”
