We've been studying all about the Iditarod Dog Sled Race that takes place in Alaska each year. Balto is the dog credited with saving the town of Nome from a deadly outbreak of diphtheria. He was the lead dog on the final dog sled team in the serum relay of 1925. We read the book Balto and today we watched the Disney movie. We compared the story to the movie. Here are some photos of our afternoon.
