Mrs. Meeks developed a Bike Safety Unit for fourth grade students. She incorporated objectives and goals from math, science, social studies, and physical education, with the assistance of Mrs. Lane. Mrs. Meeks arranged for a guest speaker and sought guidance from the Greene County Sheriff's Department. Plus she received donations of helmets and bikes to allow all students the opportunity to participate. The fourth graders learned new skills and had the opportunity to apply those skills in a specially designed obstacle course. They also got to practice riding their bikes correctly while using hand signals. They learned about the importance of wearing helmets: 900 people die each year and even more suffer from brain damage after being in accidents and not wearing a helmet.
