What educators are saying

This is perfect for anyone who teaches 2nd grade social studies looking for resources. It has all the topics/resources you need, and then some! 10/10 would recommend.
Our district did not provide anything "kid friendly" to go with our new "curriculum". So, this has been wonderful to use with my students! Great resource! Thank you!
