Students will have fun reading about the Gold Rush and reviewing what they learned in class. As they read each page, they will follow directions to color, cut, glue or draw pictures on their construction paper project. This could be used as an independent activity or would be a great group project. The students collaboratively work on the Gold Rush picture on a poster or butcher paper. Then as a group, present it to the class. A page is included where students can write a story about their picture, describe what is happening in their picture or summarize what they learned about the Gold Rush.
