Welcome to our study of the 2002 Iditarod!

With the help of the internet, our class is following the Iditarod sled dog race across Alaska. We are integrating many skills into this study, which include using the internet to access information about the race, writing weather reports, recording and graphing the temperature in Alaska and Vermont, writing news summaries about the race, and reporting all of the information back to the class.

Each student has randomly chosen five or six mushers to follow throughout the race and keeps track of those mushers throughout the race.

We track the daily standings of all mushers on a map in the hallway using flag pins as mushers. This is how the rest of the school follows the progress of the race and all of the news.
