Week of March 2nd-6th

Dear PACE Parents,

This week our main focus was the mushers of the Iditarod race. We learned about the job of the musher and the supplies that they need. We looked up the profiles of the mushers in this year’s Iditarod race.

The Iditarod race begins this Saturday, March 7th in Anchorage with a ceremonial start. On Monday, March 9th, the mushers will take off from Fairbanks and head toward Nome. The students will be able to track their mushers over Spring Break by logging in to the website http://iditarod.com/.

Research Update

As far as research goes, my classes are all at different parts of research due to snow days, holidays, and benchmark testing! We are working to finish the final copies of our research paper in a few weeks.

Research Products

The final product that goes with the research paper will be due the week of April 13th on PACE day. The students can choose from the list of products on page 9 in the research packet found in the PACE folder. This product will be displayed at Evening with the Experts along with the final paper and presentation board!

The picture below shows an example of a presentation board and a product. We will complete the board in class. The product in the picture is the model of the trophy.
