Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- More students will be on the streets Wednesday, biking and walking to school for Nevada Moves Day.

The goal of the event is to teach kids about pedestrian and bike safety on the roads and to encourage them to be more physically active.

This is the fourth year for this special day. Last year, more than 90 schools in Clark County participated.

Sewell Elementary is one of the schools that are participated. Many of the kids on their way to school this morning arrived hand in hand with a parent.

Some kids chose to walk with their friends and some rode their scooters or bicycles.

Schools from around the state are participating in Nevada Moves Day, including 30 schools in Clark County.

Orgniazers of the event were at the various schools handing out activity books to kids who participated. They say that they don't want this to be a one-day lesson and are hoping that parents will talk to their kids about what they learned on Nevada Moves Day.

During Nevada Moves Day, drivers are encouraged to pay extra attenting to children who will be walking and bicycling to school and to be increasingly mindful of reducing speeds and heeding various school start times.
