Iditarod starts today!!

Recommended Posts

The iditarod started today. The kids and I are watching the documentary on Netflix since this years race isn't on tv.


Any suggestions for studying the race this week with 3 k'ers, 3rd grader and a 17 year old as well as their interested parents. :)

Currclick also has a sled dog and Iditarod lapbook


We normally track a musher and read through a big pile of picture books


You would want to male sure you study the original serum run


If you haven't already I recommended reading/studying about the original serum run.


You could also turn it into an Alaska or arctic unit study

There are a lot of educational materials on the Iditarod site: http://iditarod.com/teachers/.


The movie Balto http://www.amazon.com/Balto-Kevin-Bacon/dp/B00005TSMN/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1362359302&sr=8-1&keywords=balto has been one of my kids' favorites for years.


Here is an old page that still has a lot of active links related to the Iditarod: http://surfaquarium.com/NEWSLETTER/PDF/iditarod2004.pdf.


Here is a webquest on sled dogs: http://library.thinkquest.org/04oct/00450/sleddogs.htm.
