Product Description
The Great Race of Mercy 1925, 3 scripts in 1 resource (Simplified)
By Carol Montgomery
from the children’s book The Great Serum Race–Blazing the Iditarod Trail
 and the adult book The Cruelest Miles


Sled dogs.  Saving children.  Non-fiction adventure.  "The Great Race of Mercy 1925 (Simplified)" covers the entire race in a 3-part, historically accurate story.   Invite your students to participate in the Great Race of Mercy of 1925 that saved children and adults in Nome, Alaska, from a diphtheria epidemic.  You may find other related scripts in our Store (e.g., "Togo–Sled Dog Hero").  Like all of our scripts, "The Great Race of Mercy 1925 (Simplified)" comes complete with annotated curriculum links for easy lesson plans.  

The Iditarod, held in March in Alaska every year, commemorates The Great Race of Mercy (also known as The Great Serum Race).  Students love tracking the adventure and reliving the thrill of people committed to helping save the lives of others. Perfect for early elementary students, "The Great Race of Mercy (Part 1,2, & 3, Simplified)" motivates further reading by making history and adventure come alive!
