Students put their book skills against their teacher’s at Canyon Crest Elementary on March 15, 2017. In a contest of story details, titles and authors, teams worked together to answer quickly and correctly.
A team of students and a team of teachers from the 4th, 5th and 6th grades competed. The intense battle was in the same format as a spelling bee. Team by team, the judges asked a question about a detail from a book, the team debated the answer and one team member gave the final answer.
Students in the audience made posters of support for their favorite team. When an incorrect answer was given, an audible sigh filled the room. Whispers of excitement buzzed when a team answered correctly.
