How long does it take to finish this book?
A shopper on Mar 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It would depend on the reading/grade level of your students. It's not a curriculum per se but a reading book of history coupled with related activities. It could probably be "finished" in a few weeks or maybe used over a semester.
