The Science of Sled Dogs

With Denali National Park and Preserve, Alaska


Denali National Park and Preserve hosts the US government's only dog-sled team. It can be hard to get here, but you can bring Denali into your classroom instead! Students explore the adaptations - behaviors, forms (anatomy), and functions (physiology) - that make Denali's sled dogs well-suited to living and working in subarctic winter conditions.
