WILDERNESS CLASSROOMS visited Riverview Elementary virtually.  Today we had our second citizenship reward activity. We had the opportunity to learn from Dave and Amy Freeman. They were named adventures of the year by National Geographic. 

The Dogsledding Virtual Assembly combined lessons, images, videos, and equipment accumulated during hundreds of days and thousands of miles exploring the winter wilderness by dogsled.  The fast-paced, fun assembly helped students understand what it is like to work with sled dogs and imagine what it feels like to drive their own dog team.  Riverview students came up with some great questions during the virtual program.  Did you know that a team of 6 sled dogs can pull up to 1000 pounds?  We also learned about the ABC.  These life skills of Expedition ABCs teach children simple but effective ways to be their best selves.  A: Attitude B: Believe C: Care
