School assembly presentations on Alaska dog mushing

This assembly appropriate for grades K-12, classroom size or full auditorium.

“Lorraine Temple gave a fantastic presentation on dog mushing in Alaska to grades K-8. There was something for each grade level! Her informative delivery was enhanced by a beautiful slide show of the landscape and wildlife of the area. Lorraine was an example of someone who has set a goal for herself and achieved it ~ a great role model for kids of all ages!”

Keys School, Palo Alto, CA

“This was my all-time favorite assembly! Having been to Alaska recently, I especially enjoyed the beautiful slides with Lorraine’s wonderful narration. The students were spellbound for a full hour and loved interacting with the dogs (as I did!) Ms. Temple’s presentation was informative, enthusiastic and fun. I would love to have her come each year!”

“Your presentation was astounding and beautiful and rich. Your dogs…can’t say enough. Magic! I did want to comment on your closing remarks and the quote you read; I was so pleased to know that you think enough about our children (and I mean globally) to take the time to convey the message of adventure to them. It is an incredibly important message that this younger generation is missing. To them: “There are no great explorations left. There are no “unknown” lands.” All that is left is one’s imagination and ambition. For you to come to our classroom with your energy and dogs and sense of adventure is a very necessary lesson. I’m so glad my daughter had the opportunity to meet you…”

“I would like to heartily endorse her assembly program Lorraine’s presentation was entertaining, informative, adventuresome and downright inspiring. Her multi faceted approach was a key to maintaining the kids interest. Utilizing slides, videos, music, maps and the stars of the show, her own huskies, the audiences were extremely interested and focused. All in all, it was a warm and inspiring tale of a person seeking and adventure and fullness in life, as well as a mini lesson about the great north of the United States. As any school administrator knows, the audience is often the gauge of the quality of the presenter and today, our student audiences were exceptional! Again, I would very highly recommend Lorraine Temple and her dogs to visit and inspire you students.”
