Transcript of Michigan!!
Michigan is a very interesting state!
Michigan is in the U.S.A.
This Prezi is all about Michigan and places in Michigan.
Iron ore, gold, dimands, plants, the Great Lakes, copper and many other things are natural resources! A lot of natural resources are found in the Upper Peninsula. Natural resources are everywhere!
In Michigan we have two main regions, the Upper Peninsula (U.P.) and the Lower Peninsula (L.P.). In the U.P. there are small mountains and rolling hills. The U.P. is rich with natural resources and the biggest city in the U.P. is Marquette. It became even bigger when iron was found. In the L.P. there is a much bigger population. Glaciers made the L.P. low and flat. There are also many acres of forest.
There are many cool places in Michigan. For example, Sleeping Bear Dunes, the Soo Locks, Mackinac Island , Beaver Island, Comerica Park, Pictured Rocks (shown below) and much more!
Isn't Michigan cool? All these places/facts are in/about Michigan! I hope you liked my Prezi!
Mackinac Island is inbetween the U.P. and L.P. Long ago it was a yearly gathering for the Anishinaabe tribe. It is a popular destination for tourists. No cars are allowedon the island. In fact, you can get a horse and carriage ride. There is a state harbor and the famous Grand Hotel also on the island.
Beaver island is in nourthern Lake Michigan. It is part of Charlevoix County and the school district that covers the island is much better than the state average.
Fayette is a state park between Escanaba and Manistique in the U.P. The approximate size is 711 acres and it is named after Fayette Brown.

Chinch Bug Island
There used to be a house on Chinch Bug Island in the middle of Cass Lake. One day, the owners of the house were going to church and when they came back, the house was on fire!
