Final Writing Assignment
Dear Mom and Dad,
I think we should go to Alaska to see the Iditarod because it would be cool to see the geography and the history and more. Maybe? Let me explain, you’ll change your mind.
First, the race started when Nome was sick. Dogs had to race to get the medicine. Then when they get back they would get better. Then they made it a great sport.
Second, the weather, it’s sometimes warm, that’s in the summer. It could also get waist high in snow, and it could get icy. But that would be a blast!
Third, the geography, the mushers don’t go through very smooth surfaces. They have to go up and down hills. Also through trees, and mountains. It’s not that easy.
Fourth, the race started when all of Nome, Alaska was sick with Diphtheria. All of Nome needed sled dogs to get the medicine transported. The dog teams needed to race to get the medicine. So when they get back everyone will be okay!
Fifth, the sights! There are two different ranges. The 1st one is called, Alaska Range. The 2nd one is called Brooks Range. If we went there I would want to fly right over them! Doesn’t that sound like fun!
Also, we could see how the mushers and the dog sled teams work together. We could also ask how they tell the dogs what to do. We could ask why they need to drop off the dogs! I think it’s because the dogs aren’t in the best condition.
In the end, we should see the Iditarod. Why? Didn’t I just explain that? Let me put it this way. We should go because of the geography, history, and a whole lot more.
