Yahoo! There be gold in them thare ‘ilz! Are your children learning about the California Gold Rush? Are they interested in prospecting? How about this, do they know how gold was mined during the gold rush? Do they know when the gold rush started? If you would like to get the answers to these questions and more, then I have just the learning pack for them in my lapbook series which is a study guide for the book: What Was the Gold Rush by Joan Holub as illustrated by Tim Tomkinson. In this lapbook your child or student will find all sorts of facts, illustrations, and explanations as to what the California Gold Rush was. I think that this book is perfect for children and students in the 1st through 5th grades.
I created this All About the Gold Rush Lapbook book study to be 10 lessons that I spread out over a two week period; however, if you wanted to read more than one chapter a day you certainly could complete this lapbook in one week. To complete this lapbook you will need to purchase the book What Was the Gold Rush by Joan Holub as illustrated by Tim Tomkinson.
All of the lapbook elements are provided so that you can organize yours as you see fit. Simply cut out the elements and attach them to your lapbook shell in any manner or order that you wish. The elements are designed so that your child or student in the 1st through 5th grades can put as much details, pictures, or explanation as you require of them
