Our class was wild over our two week literacy unit surrounding the Iditarod Sled Dog Race! We challenged our favorite musher by counting each page we read during the race as a mile on our giant map of Alaska. We devoured all kinds of fiction and nonfiction mushing books. We discovered more about nonfiction graphic sources, and we ended every day dancing to “I Did, I Did, I Did the Iditarod Trail.”
Sled Dogs Rule
I get tugged by sled dogs.
I zip across the churning snow.
In Alaska moose can break me with their antlers.
I am made of wood.
I am an Iditarod dogsled.
