          Teacher Feedback 

          1. “This resource saved me hours and hours of time. I am new to teaching science this year and this has allowed me to have something to rely on. I supplement it with issues in our area, but I could use this resource without supplementing it. All of the resources by 2PeasAndADog are outstanding. Well worth the price for the time I save and the quality of material.”
          2. “Wonderful resource that made learning fun and planning easy! Students were engaged and enjoyed the learning activities!”
          3. “Great resource for Grade 8 science, especially in virtual.”
