It's February and the annual Alaska Iditarod Race is in the final stages of preparation. You can follow this race as a casual viewer, or really get in to the deep details of each team of dogs and their musher. These details and more can be found on the Official Iditarod Web site. There is still time to have your homeroom or class follow a team. The race begins March 1, 2008 at 10AM. Make a map, post it in your room and move the teams along each day. You can write email to the folks involved and they will write back, or follow them on a blog. Either way, your kids can learn a lot about weather, sled dogs and the grueling race we hear about on the news!
