Product Description
I created this web activity/web quest to use with Oakland Museum of CA's online exhibit on the 1849 Gold Rush, which can be found at this address: http://www.museumca.org/goldrush/

This documents contains 3 parts: 1, questions for the students to answer as they click through the exhibit; 2, an art inquiry using the artwork available on the site; 3, an exploration of the racial diversity that developed as the Gold Rush attracted different groups of people.

As an extension activity, I have also included 3 Gold Rush era songs that you can assign students to analyze and interpret.
