The Iditarod Sled Dogs in the Classroom

The Garrison Elementary School team of Meghan Mayhew, Rachel Hill, Michael Romps and Rima Sawyer are now able to bring the Iditarod Sled Dog Race to the second-grade classrooms of Garrison School. Thanks to an extremely specialized software and website access, students will follow musher teams, explore Alaskan communities, track weather patterns, and use mapping skills to understand the Iditarod trail. The integrated unit will include access to a comprehensive website that provides remote access to the race, including live coverage and GPA tracking of the musher teams.
