    I teach 4th grade and have done a unit on the Iditarod for a couple of years now, the kids love it. you can look up the iditarod on the internet and they have an official website. you can also order their "education packet" which is great. I have the students pick their musher's name from a big snow boot, and we track where they are on a big Alaska map that has the trail, the kids check the internet daily to find out where their musher is in the race. they also built their own mini sleds, we did an "I Did A Read" to go along with the race, and many other fun activities. We read about Alaska as well as doing mini reports on wildlife, parks, etc. I have all my info at school and would be glad to email you more ideas once I'm back
