Main Idea
  • Akiak is the lead dog in the Iditarod race and
    is injured. He was hurt and was left behind to
    get better. He came back to finish the race with
    his team.

5
Problem
  • The problem is when Akiak hurts his paw and has
    to be left behind to get better.

6
Solution
  • Akiak did not want to be left behind so he found
    his way out of the vet. He ran past all the men
    and then joined his team again to finish the race.

7
Reflection/Meaning of the Story
  • I think the meaning of the story is that you
    should never give up and finish what you start.
    Akiak showed this in the story by coming back
    when he was hurt to finish the race. When I was
    playing basketball I fell and ate it in front
    of everyone. I was SO embarrassed but, I got
    back up and kept playing until the quarter was
    over. I felt great after the game was over that
    I finished what I started!

8
Comprehension Questions
  • 1. Why did Akiak have to be left behind?
  • 2. Why do you think a man opened the door for
    Akiak? Would you have done the same thing?
  • 3. When Akiak found Mick and the team why did
    she ride in the sled?
