The Last Great Race on Earth
A race extraordinaire , a race only possible in Alaska. From Anchorage, in south central Alaska, to Nome on the western Bering Sea coast, each team of 12 to 16 dogs and their musher cover over 1150 miles in 10 to 17 days.
The Iditarod Trail, now a National Historic Trail, had its beginnings as a mail and supply route from the coastal towns of Seward and Knik to the interior mining camps at Flat, Ophir, Ruby and beyond to the west coast communities of Unalakleet, Elim, Golovin, White Mountain and Nome. Mail and supplies went in. Gold came out. All via dog sled. Heroes were made, legends were born. In 1925, part of the Iditarod Trail became a life saving highway for epidemic-stricken Nome. Diphtheria threatened and serum had to be brought in; again by intrepid dog mushers and their faithful hard-driving dogs. The Iditarod is a commemoration of those yesterdays, a not-so-distant past that Alaskans honor and are proud of.
An Event for All Alaska
The race route is alternated every other year, one year going north through Cripple, Ruby and Galena, the next year south through Iditarod, Shageluk, Anvik.

by Tracy Elkins, Ann Hooser, Rhonda Madrid, Becky Ortiz Introduction Task Resources Process ... Conclusion
Introduction You know how weird parents can be, right? Well, yours have just announced that the family is going to take a vacation during the school year and you have a chance to decide where. The catch is (you know there's always one with parents) it has to be an educational experience. You know the other kids are trying to figure out how to make a trip to Disneyland educational. This will never get past your parents. You have to come up with a vacation plan that everyone will love. You have to make this good, cause you don't want to end up wandering through a stuffy old museum like last year. You've heard about this sled dog race in Alaska called the Iditarod and wonder if maybe this would be not only a vacation but an adventure your family would never forget.
The Task To convince your parents that Alaska is the best place to go for a vacation, your class is going to learn as much as they can about the race, Alaska, and the people that live there. To add to the fun, the class will act as a TV news team to gather information. There will be 5 groups of reporters. Each one will cover one of the following topics: history, geography, art and culture, math, and science. We will have a live news cast that will be taped for parents who won't be able to make it. History Reporters 1. You will need to know some history of the Iditarod. To help you with this there are several

Alaska's annual Iditarod Dogsled Race is a perfectly "teachable moment." Wise teachers use the race and the many Web sites connected with it to teach geography, math, reading, and language arts. More than that, this annual race can teach students a thing or two about fairness in competition and about the pride and dignity that comes with seeing a job through to its completion.
