PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

OBJECTIVE:
To re-create one of the most exciting events in American history.

TIME:
30 minutes

Give each student a copy of pages 71A - 71C only. These pages include background information pertaining to the gold rush, directions for the GOLD RUSH GAME, and the Incidents and Events list that is used to play the game.

Read with the class the background information and game rules.

Divide the class into groups of three or preferably four students. Give each group a die, markers, and gameboard (the map). Markers can be made by cutting small squares from a sheet of construction paper. The markers should be small enough to fit inside of the spaces along the map routes. Each group member will need one marker. Prepare the gameboards ahead of time. Remove the right-hand margin from page 71D, and fasten it to page 71E with a piece of tape. Print and make enough gameboards so that each group will have one.

SPECIAL NOTE:
In my experience, kids find this game so exciting that they always ask me to play it again before class ends!

Teacher Instructions included.
