The only consumables in PHFHG are DITHOR workbooks and math workbooks. For two students, it is still important they do the "I" boxes independently. An easy way to do this is to have one reading the "I" Science book, while the other is reading the "I" Independent History book (or extension book, if you have a student that age). For orally narrating with two students, here's a great blog post Carrie did...

You can also have the guide open in one common spot, so they can each see the directions and reference the guide as needed. The kitchen table or counter, or the dining room table often work well. Hope that helps!

In Christ,
