It's Iditarod Time!

Goooooooooooood morning from the start of the Iditarod everybody!
The ceremonial start is today in downtown Anchorage!

I'm a bit embarrassed to admit this but I didn't know much about the Iditarod nor do anything with my students....and I've lived here about 10 years now!  But for some reason I dove in and learned all about it and it's so fascinating, all the cool little tidbits that make up the 1,000+ 'Last Great Race'.
If you want to bring the adventure into your classroom over the next 2 weeks, check out this Iditarod unit that incorporates reading, writing & math.

I'm heading out with my own kids to see the action in person for the first time! I'll hopefully post some pictures tomorrow!
