Students looking at author on projected screenFlickinger third graders recently participated in the ASK program through the Macomb ISD. 

Students read a novel about Michigan history entitled, Traders In Time as well interviewed the author Janie Panagopoulos. 

"I liked how the author made the book a dream so we could travel back in time and learn about Native American life,"  said third grader Keira McMillan .  Students were given the opportunity to ask the author questions about her work. 

"I asked the author if Mcdougall was a real fur trader in Michigan,"  commented  third grader Daniel Scribner.  Integrating reading, writing, social studies, and technology has created meaningful learning experiences for Flickinger students. 

Traveling through time in Michigan studies has taken on a whole new dimension.
