Teacher Feedback

  1. "This package is a total lifesaver! I'm teaching a straight 8 and a 7/8 geography class this year and I can't even begin to tell you how helpful it is. Thanks for putting this together and all your hard work."
  2. "Another phenomenal resource by 2 Peas and a Dog. Can't go wrong with her high-quality resources!!"
  3. "This is wonderful, excellent value for money. I've never taught geography before and have no textbooks for my students, so this is brilliant. A lot of work has gone into it, and I will definitely buy Part B."
  4. "Great resource. Loved the inquiry-based and hands-on learning options. Very engaging. "
  5. "This is a fantastic and well-explored unit! I am extremely happy to have this unit and my students LOVE it! Definitely worth more than what it is being advertised for!"
