Product Description
This minilesson about the California Gold Rush incorporates the multiple-meaning vocabulary words: rush, pan, nugget, record, strike, boom. After two pages of double spaced informational text, students use a list of dictionary entries for each of the six words. From them, students answer eight questions. Six require that they choose the correct definition as each word is used in a sentence. Then students list the entry words that have two syllables. The last question asks them which syllable gets accented when the word "record" is used as a verb. The provided dictionary entry for "record" should lead them to the answer.
This minilesson helps students choose among definitions of multiple-meaning words as used in sentence context, and gives them practice in using dictionary entries. Interesting historical information about the California Gold Rush and the "Forty-Niners" plus a photo of one panning for gold can serve as a motivator for reluctant learners.
