This project is great way to get kids excited about the upcoming Iditarod Race held in March (although it could be used anytime of the year). Using the internet for research (possible website links included), students will gather information to create a tri-fold brochure.This online investigation will have kids working on reading, writing, technology, and listening/speaking standards, while being a fun and exciting learning experience!
I have included a full color sample for you to show your students, as well as a grading sheet to use if you wish. As a finishing piece, you can also opt to have students share their finished brochures in groups or whole class.
