The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race starts this weekend and we have been working on our sled dog lapbook this past week. We have also picked each a musher (even Dad did!) and watched a beautiful video on the Iditarod . If you visit the Iditarod site I have linked, look for the Free 18 minute "2008 Iditarod Preview". We are planning on following the race on the internet, and we will use a Daily Race Statistics chart (found here) to keep track of each musher's progress.
Here are some pictures of our lapbook so far...I will post more pictures when we are finished as well.
