Known as "The Last Great Race" the Iditarod is an annual long-distance sled dog race run in early March from Anchorage to Nome Alaska. The 2015 race starts March 7th.
Below I have listed some sites with resources that you can use to incorporate the Iditarod into your curriculum. No matter what subject or grade you teach you can incorporate the Iditarod into your lessons in a meaningful way.
