The Grand Canyon joined the National Park system in 1919 and plays host to more than four million visitors a year. Teachers, did you know you could be one of those visitors? The Grand Canyon National Park offers teachers the opportunity to visit the park through class field trips and professional development programs.
Can't make it to the park? The National Park Service also offers online classroom activities for you and your students. For more information, visit www.nps.gov/grca/forteachers/index.htm.
