Cool Stuff

Battle of the Books!

The first ever Battle of the Books is being held here at the library for Frelinghuysen Middle School students on May 31st.

A typical "Battle" is a full day tournament or game, like the College Bowl, in which students' teams earn points by answering questions about the books on the book list. They play several rounds, each against a different team. At the end of the morning, points are totaled and the two teams with the most points are invited to a "Grand Battle", with the other teams as their audience.

Battle of the Books is a literature contest that all grades and all students at FMS can take part in. Teams are comprised of up to five students.  The team members are asked to read and become knowledgeable about the content from a list of books selected by Mr. Rosso. Teams that are made up of a mix of 6th, 7th, or 8th graders are acceptable.
