Have students follow along to identify 4 causes (e.g. wagon trails), 4 figures (e.g. John Sutter), 4 events (e.g. boomtowns) and 4 effects (e.g. Native Epidemics) of the California Gold Rush. Also, have students work on the John Sutter Stick Figure mini-biography assignment for homework, classwork, or group work. Thumbnail printouts of the 16 images are available for students to cut out and paste in the boxes as well. Enjoy!
