Thank you so much for your consideration of this 125-page supplemental resource pack. These gold rush activities are designed to improve the critical thinking, creative thinking, communication, research skills, and affective thinking of your students. This is a great resource for use in the regular classroom, and is also terrific for use with gifted and talented students. Activities highlight a number of Gold Rush events and include a student learning log, comprehension passages, enrichment extensions, writing activities, notetaking resources, classroom creative fun, etc. It also highlights America's first Gold Rush in Dahlonega, GA. I hope you enjoy these supplemental activities, and please visit me regularly at my blog as well--http://bryantsbraintrain.blogspot.com.
I use the enclosed learning log as the bulk of my unit, and then add in additional activities as time permits. Each learning log entry also includes an enrichment/extension option for added differentiation. My students love working through these activities and also are excited to take home their completed learning logs as a keepsake to share with family and friends. In this take-home learning log, I also include photos we have taken in class throughout our study, as well as other related student work samples. Thank you so much for your support and for this purchase! See also my 2 gold rush power points which accompany this resource pack! There is also a fun Gold Rush BINGO Game at my TpT store as well. Teaching is a "priceless" gift, so I hope you find these resources to be a "valuable" classroom tool!
