This week, LME second graders participated in a Google Hangout with a real Alaskan dog sled racer! As part of their studies, the students have been learning about this interesting winter sport. They wrote questions to ask the expert ahead of time, and were able to find out the answers they needed about mushing and the Iditarod race. Each of our seven classes joined the Hangout from the comfort of their classrooms, rather than being crowded into one single space, which worked wonderfully! The students learned a lot about mushing, and were even able to get a short tour of the outdoors in Fairbanks, Alaska.
