Schuylerville Elementary School students in Peter Carner’s fourth grade class have been keeping a close eye on this month’s Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race in Alaska. That’s because each student selected a musher to cheer on. Students researched where their mushers are from and followed them across Alaska, learning about the communities and comparing them to Schuylerville. As a culminating activity, the class built a dog sled and tested it out. Check out some more photos below!
