We will be learning about the Iditarod this year and each class will be responsible for reporting on different aspects!

Check out the assignment page to see what your class is responsible for researching. Your job is to teach your fellow students about your aspect of the race. Select one or two class leaders to help organize the team; decide together as a class who will research which aspects.

Once decided, click on your team's page and begin assembling your information, Be creative in your presentation. This is an open option wiki - there is no set format and questions - your team decides what information is important to present to the class.

The links page will provide you with places ot start your research. Use creativity - include photos, maps, color, charts, etc. Remember to CITE all your resources - a simple web address in parantheses after your text information, or under your photo will be sufficient.

Keep in mind - your teamwork will contribute to your grade - working cooperatively and quietly will earn you points!http://www.facebook.com/pages/Boycotting-Outdoor-Adventures-in-BC-Whistler/180065432029885
