Today was the second day of our week-long journey across the state. We began in Elkin and traveled through historic Rockford Village.
We stopped at East Bend Elementary School in Yadkin County to visit the fifth grade class. Prior to the trip, we learned the fourth grade class took a course on bike safety, and we wanted to learn from the pros.
The students shared many important lessons: “Wear a helmet.” “Use hand signals.” And our favorite, when they learned of our adventure: “If you are going to go that far, you probably should train first.”
We asked the fifth grade class what they love most about North Carolina. Their answers included “beaches,” “the people,” “freedom,” “the weather,” and “the schools.” Watch below to hear some of their answers.
