The new school year is well underway, and elementary school students all over the state are learning about Michigan history. This year, teachers will have a new tool to introduce kids to stories from Michigan's past. The Historical Society of Michigan is relaunching a history publication geared for younger students. It’s a magazine called Michigan History for Kids.
