Where Do You Cool Off in Alaska?

Per usual, I was perusing blogs the other night as I was trying to "sleep".  Some time in the wee hours of the morning, I found myself more than a little amused when I came across a post about "Alaska" on the One Extra Degree blog.  Then, as I later ventured on to Pinterest, I saw several other bloggers who have also created "Alaska" in their classrooms too.  I think the idea of sending the kiddos to "Alaska" to cool off is ingenious!

  I too, have been working on a place in my classroom where the kids can go to cool off. I would love to borrow the idea, but there's one slight problem...we actually live in Alaska.  As witnessed by the picture I've posted (which was taken in late June) of the kids and I, Alaska really is a great place to cool off even in the dog days of summer.  So my friends, my question to you is: Where should kids in Alaska go to cool off?  I'm thinking they just may need to go somewhere warm and tropical, where they can sunbathe their troubles away.  What do you think?


  1. Hahaha!! I see the predicament... Maybe you should go to Hawaii to "warm up to the expectations"!!

    1. Taylor, I like your thinking. Super cute catch phrase.

  2. Love Taylor's idea! You know we all flock to Hawaii at Christmas or Spring Break to get a breather :)

  3. Hahahahaha! I am glad you could find some amusement through my blog during one of your sleepless nights. :) I think a tropical vacation sounds like a great place to relax! Great thinking!!!
