Ms Soltau's Class

Our class, our school, what we do….

Yukon Quest News & Dog Sleds


This week we learned some new vocabulary about Sled Dog racing with our Words Their Way.  Some of the vocabulary was related to the sled.  Students also learned some commands that mushers use to train and direct their dogs.  

We are lucky enough to have a student teacher, Ms. Shiels with us and she did a fun lesson on sleds on Friday.  We created our own dog sleds out of popsicle sticks.  It looks like Captain Kirk and Pluto have formed a  team.

Can you name the different parts of the sled?

  • Handlebars
  • Stanchions
  • Runners
  • Brushbow

Next week will learn about how the dogs are connected to harnesses.  You can keep updated on the race news HERE
