    Although this is a distance learning resource because it is easily completed by students on their own, it is NOT digital. It is a PDF resource.

    Have students learn fun but meaningful information about history and the world around them while reading and annotating articles, answering questions, and evaluating the material presented.

    This growing bundle does not have set release dates, but the plan is to add new packets until there are 20 History Minutes included in this set. At that time this bundle would be worth at least $80. Buying in early ensures you the best price, as you will get free updates throughout the process.
