This is the first resource in my series "History as it Happened".
“The Klondike Gold Rush” includes two differentiated reading texts (Part 1 and Part 2) written at two levels for a total of four text pages. Please note that the second, higher level passages do NOT have the four vocabulary words underlined.
The passages contain almost identical information and include the same vocabulary words.
There is one student work page for each of the passages (i.e. the worksheets are not differentiated) and one writing/research activity for students to complete.
The worksheet includes comprehensive questions, vocabulary work, and an opinion question. The separate writing activity can be done without the use of the internet or books, as a creative writing activity. It also is perfect for students to use their research skills but if the activity is being used that way, they will need access online or to books about the gold rush. Answer keys are included for the student work pages.
Feel free to send me suggestions for more installments in this series via the Q and A section!
