WOW Mini Field Trip
Our WOW team went on a mini field
trip to Eastern Illinois University.
We met Dr. Eberly and Dr. Coffey.
They are both Athletes.
Dr. Eberly rides bicycles. He taught us how to be safe when we are riding our bikes. He told us to wear helmets. He also warned us about cars when we cross the street. He advised us to get off of our bikes and walk it across the street. Dr. Eberly told us a story about an accident he had when he was riding his bike. A car wasn't paying attention and accidently hit him. He was hurt pretty bad.
Dr. Coffey is a basketball player. We ran out of time so we didn't get to talk to him for very long. We were very grateful that he took the time to come and talk with us!
Thank You Dr. Eberly and Dr. Coffey!
