Carla Trussell, Breanna Barnes, and Kelly McCarty recently returned from their 10 day trip to Iceland and Denmark to study the Vikings. Fund for Teachers allows teachers to plan their own summer inservice. These De Leon Elementary 5th grade teachers visited Eric the Red's house in Western Iceland and went to see the site of the first parliament which the Vikings established about 1000 a.d. Then, in Denmark they visited the oldest town in Denmark , Ribe, established by the Vikings about 800 a.d. They visited a recreated Viking settlement, attended a Viking Moot, and sailed the fjords in a Viking boat. Very educational adventure! We recommend others apply with their own summer inservice plans!
