Elementary Battle of the BooksThe Elementary Battle of the Books (EBOB) is an exciting competition that occurs annually in Iredell-Statesville Schools. EBOB is for 4th and 5th grade students with a strong reading ability. The teachers usually nominate or suggest students. In late March or early April the district wide competition is held. There, the Harmony team will compete against the other elementary schools in the district. If they come in first place, the team will then participate in the regional competition. Each student must read 15 novels and remember the title and author. The questions for the battle are in a "In which book did 'something' occur?" format. The team then has to recall in which book the detail occurred in. They have to state the title and author. It is a fun yet challenging competition!
