Iditarod 2015!

It has been an exciting month in 5M!  The students studied the Iditarod dogsled race, which takes place in Alaska, and began on the first weekend in March.  Each student researched a musher and then followed that musher throughout the race.  Students would come into the classroom every morning, eager to grab a laptop to see where their musher was in the race. Along with their musher's place in the race, the students were very interested in the sled dog team of their musher. We were fortunate to have a local dogsled team come and visit OQS. The students got to pet the dogs and learn how they are harnessed to the sleds. As you can see, it was a very fun day getting to know the dogs!
