JT and Carleen talk Grand Canyon:
Here's a rundown:
Q: When Grand Classroom started in 2002, the Grand Canyon was the first trip… tell me about that.
A: I’ve always loved the outdoors. I have done a lot of traveling and found my heart was in the west. The Grand Canyon being the marvel that it is, I wanted to get kids off the pavement and outside.
Q: Now that we are here in 2020, everyone is talking about getting outside. What a wonderful place to go and bring students.

Ardis and Kerianne talk about our fantastic Iceland trip!
Can you give me a quick summary of the trip?
Most Grand Classroom trips last 6-7 days 5-6 nights on the island and we travel some 900 - 1100 miles. Some days can be long, leaving a hotel at 8:00 am and arriving back at 6:00 PM having dinner at 7:00 PM. We travel mostly in the South West part of the island surrounded by all kinds of natural forces like, the volcanoes, the ocean, the glaciers, the water streams, rivers and lakes, the weather to name the strongest ones. Iceland has two locations on Unesco´s World Heritage List. We most often visit both: Þingvellir and the National Park Waterglacier (Vatnajökulsþjóðgarð).
