Klondike Gold Rush Webquest
This webquest was updated on 11/26/2017 because the website changed. The new website works great!
Students will research the Klondike Gold Rush by completing a great internet-based worksheet. The Klondike Gold Rush Webquest uses a very student friendly website that covers the basics of events and facts about the gold rush. The webquest also works great as historical background for Call of the Wild and several other books by Jack London.
The following topics are covered in this webquest:
The discovery of gold in the Yukon Territory
The difficulties of traveling to the Klondike
The development of Dawson City
The economic impact of the Klondike Gold Rush on Canada and the United States

The webquest contains 25 questions and is a great way to introduce or to have your students go into more depth on the Klondike Gold Rush. An answer sheet is included for the teacher. A QR code is included along with the traditional website link. The webquest will take most students at least 15 to 30 minutes to complete depending on age. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students.
