Polar Husky -
I joined this expedition online with my Grade
1's in previous years and we loved it. Each child "adopted" one of the
dogs from the kennel, and we went online 3 times a week to
listen to the audio, view the video, or study a new portion of
information available. Each child had a "Polar Husky.com"
scribbler, and we documented with drawing and/or writing what
we learned each day. Teachers and scientists participate in
the race, which goes from Feb. 14 - March 1; 700 miles in
Yukon Quest http://dl1.yukoncollege.yk.ca/yukonquest From Fairbanks to Whitehorse; teaching activities and
resources to support the race; approximately 2 week commitment
from Feb. 11 - 22; 1000 km race.
