— Fourth graders at West Clayton Elementary School adapted the required state history course into a play, making their lessons come to life.

Three classrooms of students collaborated to write the script, memorize the lines and become the characters of North Carolina.

The students will perform for their peers and teachers at 9:15 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Thursday. The public is invited to attend a 6 p.m. performance.
