Iditarod Activities for the Classroom


If you are planning on teaching your class about Alaska or any kind of dog sled racing, you and your students will LOVE this comprehensive, jam-packed set of Iditarod activities for kids. I am a born and raised Alaskan teacher (and I still live here!) and I learned about all things dogsledding when I was in elementary school, so naturally I also love teaching my own students about it. Whether you’re learning about Balto, Togo or reading Stone Fox or Woodsong, this bundle is the perfect companion to your reading or dog sled unit.


Your students will LOVE this comprehensive 250+ page Iditarod Activities for the Classroom resource that’s perfect for teaching Alaska activities, dogsledding or any kind of dog sled racing. These activities are great book companion activities for Balto, Togo, Akiak, reading Stone Fox or Woodsong.

What other teachers are saying about these Iditarod Activities for the Classroom:

  • Extremely satisfied–My class was so excited to learn about the Iditarod Sled Dog Races this year! I showed them the powerpoint presentation and we looked at the official website to see the mushers. I used several of the pages in this resource to help generate the excitement and they had fun looking at their own map to see where the dog sled teams were at on the trail. Thanks for creating such a fun and engaging product! I can’t wait to make this an annual part of my curriculum!
  • Extremely satisfied–This is the first year my third grade has followed the Iditarod. I chose to do so after they loved reading Stone Fox. I didn’t know where to start and was feeling overwhelmed; this was the perfect intro guide to help me! I made a fantastic interactive bulletin board and the kids have thoroughly enjoyed learning about sled dogs, mushers, and the Iditarod. The informational slide show had great information – I broke it into two different sessions. Very helpful!
  • Extremely satisfied–My students loved the product. They became so motivated, they would get on their laptops just to check on the Iditarod standings on their own. They loved the math and language arts activities, as much as they enjoyed the art projects and learning about the Iditarod. This was product includes so many activities and information, I can use it again next year with the same students and not use the activities I used this year. Such an amazing resource!
  • Extremely satisfied–My GOODNESS! I just got through all of the parts of this unit and you are AMAZING! Everything you could need is included in this product and the graphics are so cute, as well. This is so well planned and I appreciate all of the details you added to make it easy for use in the classroom. Great job!
