This is a California Gold Rush Simulation perfect for a day of Gold Rush fun! There are five activities set for twenty minutes. In all, the activities should take a little over an hour and a half.
This activity pairs with with The California Gold Rush Investigation
and is perfect as an end of unit activity.
I have done this a few times with kids and have ironed out all of the kinks. The set up is pretty simple and can be used year after year. The kids have an absolute blast with this and learn a lot along the way!
