Academic Pentathlon is a one-day competition that consists of five different categories: a 30 minute quiz in Science, a 30 minute quiz in Math, a 30 minute quiz in History, a 30 minute quiz in ELA, and the Super Quiz. The Super Quiz is conducted before an audience in a television game show style (imagine Jeopardy).
This year the theme for the quizzes is World War II.
During class time we will be learning about the history of World War II,Introduction to Nuclear Physics & The Manhattan Project ,American Culture: The 1940s, as well as math reasoning and problem solving. There will be a novel to read as well -Number the Stars by Lois Lowry - which will be what the ELA quiz is over.

I'm very excited for your student to be a part of this great program!
