Following the Iditarod

Dallas Seavey

Students in Mrs. Schirmer’s Fourth Grade reading class have been learning about the Iditarod.  While the event started on Saturday, they’ve spent the past few weeks reading books and researching information about it.  As part of their research, they created Musher Trading Cards using the Trading Cards iPad app by Read, Write, Think (you could use the website too). They gave each of their classmates a copy of the trading cards they made, and will watch these musher’s closely as the race progresses.  Check out their cards below!

Students will be following the Iditarod at the official site: http://iditarod.com/ and plotting progress on the classroom map.  Finally, they will skype with resident of Alaska to get first hand information about what it’s like to live there.  More on that in another post!
