The Iditarod:

Classes I, II and III followed the Iditarod. Not only were students having fun following a musher through the race, but this was also an opportunity to review map skills, gather statistical data, learn about Alaskan wildlife and research historical information. Students had the unique opportunity to speak over the phone with Melanie Gould, a musher in this year's Iditarod. The students were excited and had so many questions for her!
