This lesson is a fun way to have your kids review multiplying by two digit numbers, while introducing them to the role of vets and vet checks in the Iditarod Sled Dog Race. The kids will take on the role of a volunteer vet and complete a series of challenging word problems as they make their way down the trail. Along the way they’ll learn a little about sled dog anatomy.
