The 4th graders have been exploring the Alaskan wilderness this March by taking a deep dive into the Last Great Race on Earth, the Iditarod. After researching the Iditarod, students were assigned a musher to follow along with on the trail. They checked their mushers position in the race each day and moved their flag to their most recent checkpoint. As the race is coming to a close, students are working hard on their letter writing skills by writing letters to their mushers. Pictured above is Konrad and Annette whose musher, Brent Sass, took 1st place in this year's race!
