Issue #5 - Finding Your Way
This issue of Michigan History for Kids is called “Finding Your Way.” The stories in this issue are about the tools that help guide people when they travel from one place to another. Some tools are found in nature. The stars in the sky or trees bent in special ways show people where to go. Tools such as maps and compasses have been used by travelers for hundreds of years. Signs along the road also help people find their way. Lighthouses warn of danger and let you know where you are. People and animals act as guides to lead the way. Sometimes those guides can even save a life. We hope that the stories and activities in this issue make you want to go outside to explore your world. Enjoy!
