[ISLMA-Share] Battle of the Books

I do a battle with 6th - 8th.

Teams are volunteer, 4 or less students.
Team has 5 months to read all 20 Caudills - proof with submission of a
google form I have created with general questions about theme, villians,
conflicts, etc.
The battle takes place all on one day with a pizza party.  I have a
permission slip and students miss 75% of their classes that day. Each grade
competes against themselves, then the winning team from each grade level
against each other, then the overall student winners against a team of
teachers (who have yet to win!)
Questions are made by me and I get some from the Caudill Battle Wiki as
well.
