Dog Sledding Day
On February 13th Ms. Beaton and her Grade 3/4 class from Pictou Elementary School visited Snowpak Kennels for a day of dog sledding. The outing was a follow up of a class project that included the novel “Balto and the Great Race”, and the upcoming Yukon Quest and Iditarod dog sled races.
Students had the opportunity to Skype with the Iditarod Teacher “On the Trail” program to ask questions about the international dog sledding event that kicks off on March 7th.
Ms. Beaton’s class were also presented $200.00 from the Pictou Rotary Club to purchase a new set of class novels as well as other nonfiction titles related to dog sledding.
Great job students!
