Century second grade just wrapped up their Iditarod reading and math challenge. Teacher Kristen Poehler, a Century Elementary School second grade teacher, said students were “introduced to the amazing Iditarod sled dog race that happens in Alaska each year. We learned about the origin of the race, mushing gear, checkpoints and more. Some classes even researched a favorite musher and logged in each day to check on their race status.” The students were asked to read 15 minutes or complete a math fact page to each checkpoint. This is a photo of the challenge finishers.
