Michigan Adventure - Discover Our State Symbols
Discover our state symbols with the Yak™!
The Detroit Free Press first published Michigan Adventure! Discover Our State Symbols during Michigan Week 2002. Follow the Yak as he rides a farm wagon to an apple blossom-filled orchard, goes fly-fishing for brook trout and finds out how nature made Petoskey stones. The Michigan Historical Center is delighted to share these stories with you, thanks to the Free Press. They are PDF files.
The pages are printable quality with colorful graphics. Some may take considerable download time, depending on your Internet connection. The # symbol indicates approximate wait time from least (#) to most (###). Some are large pages; click "fit to page" in your browser's print window.
Yak's Corner is geared for young readers 6 to 13 and also can be ordered for classroom delivery as part of the Newspapers in Education program. For more information, visit the Newspapers in Education web site.
