There is a great story called Akiak. We read it every year. Our school really gets into the Iditarod. Every class chooses a musher to follow. The results - the lead team and the "Red Lantern" team (last place) - are announced at the end of everyday. The winning classes (winner and red lantern) get an ice cream (or Eskimo Pie) party at the end. The kids get really into this - getting to know their musher and his or her dogs.
