    The Menu
    We read a blog, written by a dog named Zuma. Zuma used to write about wanted her favorite food, pizza. Now she writes about eating more healthy food. But, our Classroom Iditarod banquet will continue the tradition of eating pizza at our banquet. We also serve "fish head stew." It is a mix of apple juice and the heads of gummy fish. A mystery until the banquet. There are also cookies for dessert. If you are ambitious, you can purchase dog and sled cookie cutters for an authentic look (available on the Iditarod store site).
    As of 2010 our menu has changed! We have begun to discuss the kind of food you might eat if you were going to be a part of this difficult race. The mushers really need to plan what they are going to eat because they need to think of nutrition, but they also know that when they are cold and tired, they aren't going to want to eat. So, sometimes the mushers pack some items they know they will eat when they want to just grab a quick bite. Our students now work in small groups to think of some food items that would be best to pack have for quick snacks but that can also offer some needed nutrition. They come up with some good ideas, such as grapes, cheese, and soft pretzels.
    The Guests
    We invite or fifth grade buddies, who are also our Iditarod sponsors. We also invite the previous year's first place Classroom Iditarod winners. These special guests sit at a reserved table. They practice a speech and present it during part of the banquet. Select "adult" guests, such as the principal, are also invited. We also have a special teacher who has been coming and assisting every year. She knows that I need help cutting and serving the pizza. It is quite a crowd.
