Michigan Time Traveler-Kids' History
The Michigan Time Traveler featured Michigan history topics for kids in a fun and lively newspaper page that appeared monthly in the Lansing State Journal. The Michigan Historical Center produced the Michigan Time Traveler for Lansing Newspapers in Education, Inc.
The Michigan Time Traveler began publication in August 2000. This page lists the topic and publication date of each Michigan Time Traveler edition in 2000. The teacher's guides are in PDF format, Adobe Acrobat Reader required. The newspaper pages are not available, but you may be able to obtain a black-and-white microfilm copy of the page through your library.
Teacher's guides include discussion questions and classroom activities. Some online guides include "bonus" resource pages. Guides with full-page images, such as maps and photos, will take longer to download.
