How many days were they given to read the books?

They started at the end of October. They had to find other kids to be on their team, get the forms in, read the books on their own time, and then give up a recess each week to work with the adult coordinator. Most of the classroom teachers have been letting them give up recess the past week to meet with their teams. To be fair - they really are not having recess anyway because of the weather. Still - my J is amazed by how many kids don't meet with their team to go over possible questions.

There ended up being 14 teams of kids. Teams had 4-7 members. They ended up calling a 4 way tie since they ran out of time. I guess it was the first time in 9 years that they have ever had so many teams keep going. I'm also guessing they were running out of questions...
