Bring the 'Last Great Race' to life in your classroom with this fun Iditarod unit that has reading, writing and math activities. Living in Alaska allows me to experience this truly unique event and now I've found a way to share it with others outside of Alaska. There are so many cool things about this race! Do you know what a ghost town is? Do you know what the first musher who makes it to Ruby gets?
