Alaska Fact or Fiction

We are going to play a little game and we need EVERYBODY'S participation in this. Please write a comment with some of the stereotypes, rumors, tall tales, etc. that you have heard about Alaska or that you think about Alaska. Please try and come up with different ones than your fellow commentors.

Then, for our next post we will go through them all and dispel the myths once and for all.

Have fun and be creative.

    Seriously. Everyone owns husky dogs, the iditarod is the only sled race, you can see Russia from the coast (thanks, Sarah Palin) and...that's all I got for now.

  9. Hi Steven and Rebekah,

    Well you know my students had a lot of questions about Alaska like.....

    Have you seen any polar bears? Someone told them they are all over the place.

    Have you seen any igloos? Does everyone live in them or only the Eskimos?

    Have you seen any cool animals or sea creatures?

    How deep does the snow get in Alaska? It never melts, right?

    How many people live in Alaska?

    Have you made any discoveries?

    And best of all....Do you miss Mrs. Connors?
