Iditarod 2008

We are back from a little bit of a break. Life just got too crazy so we took some time off.

Today we are back at it. We worked on our Iditarod unit. The kids each did a mini biography(if you are interested in the form that I made leave me a message and I will email it to you) on their mushers. They also made posters to show support for their mushers.

Dragon is supporting Liz Parish. He chose her because she didn't have anyone supporting her when we were choosing someone to follow.

Tracker is following Rod Whaley. Tracker made the decision because he is from Tennessee, which is close to us in SC. He also liked him because is a military man.

Squirrel is supporting Zoya DeNure. The decision was simple...she was a girl with a cool name. Gotta love it!

They also made a little book showing the equipment that the mushers would need on their adventure.

I will put pictures up as soon as I get my camera. I left it in the truck. I also have some pictures from a trip to the aquarium to share as well.
