Each March, my fourth grade students eagerly await of the start of the Iditarod - and with good reason! We customize the online countdown timer and display it daily until the start of the race.
Now it's time for you (the teacher) to sneak in some much-needed language review and math problem solving using the Iditarod excitement as your theme. This is provided in interactive SMART Board format and also in PDF format so you can use it with a document camera.
Now, we use the real online race stats and students check their musher's race standing. Students use my website and simply click to check their musher's race position. Then, they find the bookmark with their number on it and put it into their desk name tag. That's ALL the class time it takes!
And there's extras included:
There's 100 pages of materials!
Enjoy the Iditarod!
