Plato Academy 3rd Graders Compete in Their Knowledge of Children’s Literature

The 10th annual Battle of the Books competition at Plato Academy took place, on Tuesday, April 23, 2019.

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

— Dr. Seuss

Battle of the books is a nationwide incentive for schools that encourages students to become independent readers. Students are provided with a list of selected paperback books that can be found in the school library.

A typical “Battle” is a tournament or game, like the College Bowl, in which students’ teams earn points by answering questions about the books on the book list. They are assigned to a team and play against a different team. Each team collects points by providing correct answers to questions that refer to the books they have read. At the end of the battles, points are totaled and the two teams with the most points are invited to a “Grand Battle.”

“If you are going to get anywhere in life you have to read a lot of books.”

– Roald Dahl
