Alaska's winter activities are full of history and tradition, great for teaching and learning opportunities.
The Iditarod Area School District's Thematic Teaching website found online at http://www.IASDThematicTeaching.com features K-12 lesson plans and videos that use the Iditarod Sled Dog Race to teach math, history and social studies.
Watch videos showing McGrath students and community members participating in the Mini Iditarod, a McGrath School, a community tradition for 30 years. Other thematic topics on the web include aviation, energy, fish camp, integrated arts (music, playwriting, performance), water and survival.
