Iditarod.com has a nifty teacher’s section with several dogs “reporting” on various aspects of Iditarod, for different ages.
Sled Dog Ed is a retired dawg who mentions this book and how teachers can use it in their lessons:
Have your students read North to Iron Country and list each symbol and its significance. Then, ask them what 5 symbols would they use to represent the Iditarod Dog Sled Race, and what would be the significance of each? Your students may use the attached, “Symbols of the Iditarod”, to list their responses for both the book and Iditarod.
If you have kids or know some, the teachers’ section has some cool stuff.
That’s not Sled Dog Ed at the top, that’s Sled Dog Rev, below, being chased by Denali…
