Piper and I have decided to do a project called the eiditarod after seeing it over on the Lapaz Learning blog. We get to make a map of the Iditarod trail (with a little help from Tim and the plotter at work) and pick a musher to learn about and follow once the race starts. In the process we’ll be learning all about sled dogs and the Iditarod. The official Iditarod page even has a dog blogging for the kids. We’ve been working on a dog sledding lapbook from Hands of a Child to go along with the study.
