So I’m not even going to try to pretend that I’m not weird. I am weird. I know. And the truth is that since I’m homeschooling my children I’m imparting my weirdness on them. I found out that in 1o days begins the Iditarod. Okay, okay, to tell you the truth… before yesterday I didn’t even have a clue what that word meant. Or even how to say that word.
It’s the famous dog sled races across Alaska.
So Jacob, Natalie and I have checked out the main Iditarod website and we are anxiously awaiting the start of the race on March 3rd. We’re learning all about the rules of the race, what it takes to be a musher (the person who rides solo on the sled for the 1,000+ miles), how many dogs are allowed to pull the sled and how the musher takes care of them. http://iditarod.com/
I’ve already begun reading websites of curriculum to use to teach math, science and language arts all by following this race.
I know, I know. I’m weird.
