The next stop on our educational journey? The wide open spaces of Alaska, of course!
More than 3,000 miles from our first stop, the state of Alaska has so much more to offer than just snow and ice.
Alaska State Study
In this week’s state study, you’ll learn all kinds of fun facts about country’s largest state, take a look at some state symbols, and read a little about the Iditarod, an annual race unlike any other.
This state, while still fairly new compared to many others, holds the nickname, The Last Frontier. With more than 600,000 square miles of land area and most of that being inaccessible by road, it’s easy to see why.
