Take Me Out To The...Iditarod!
We've gotten back into creative mode as we wrap up these godforsaken workbooks. Workbooks are great for getting the kids moving along through their studies without much effort from the parent/teacher, but they're mind-numbing for all involved. So...off we go to study the Iditarod (as noted here)! We're finding plenty of academic studies through this unit, which will culminate with the mushers' arrival in Nome on or about March 16.
Meanwhile, we're map making, and figuring mileage, and researching the geography and topography of the state, adjacent territories and the trail. Today, I spotted my next grand adventure. (Ok...make that 25-grand adventure.)
