PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This bundled product is great for your studies on Westward Expansion and contains everything you need for your unit on the California Gold Rush. When gold was discovered in California in 1848, it didn’t take long for hopeful men (and some women) to begin heading west, expecting to strike it rich. “Wild, Wild West Careers: Gold Miners” covers the life of a gold miner and how the Gold Rush changed California and contributed to westward expansion.

This bundle includes my three California Gold Rush products:

• Wild West Careers: California Gold Rush Miners ($5.00 value)
• Reading Comprehension Passages and Questions ($4.00 value)
• California Gold Rush Bingo ($4.00 value)

Buy this bundle and get all three products for only $9.00!

This product is perfect for SUBSTITUTE TEACHERS, enrichment learning, homeschool or co-ops! The reading passages are great for CLOSE READING with any non-fiction graphic organizer. THIS LESSON INCLUDES READING PASSAGES, COMPREHENSION QUESTIONS, TEACHER’S KEY, CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES, BINGO CARDS AND CLUES, AND NON-FICTION GRAPHIC ORGANIZERS.
