First grade students from Scott Teays Elementary School know a little more about the Mountain State after visiting various stations centered around all things West Virginia. Those stations taught kids about pottery, poetry, quilting, wildlife, planting, coal mining, and much more.
"We learned about the governor, the state flower, the tree, the fish.." said Parker Armstrong.
"We know the state flower, the state tree, fruit, animal.." said Mallory McGinnis.
The past two weeks students have been studying about West Virginia in class and even taking a field trip to Heritage Farms in Huntington.
"You can really tell they're taking in a lot of this and learning all they can about West Virginia," said Teacher Tara Hinkle.
The event even included special guests.
The Mountaineer fired up the kids and then fired his gun.. Chuck and Marco were most popular for giving hugs.
"I hope they take away that West Virginia is a great state, a great place," said Hinkle.
