Product Description
This 60-minute lesson plan helps students learn about California Gold Rush.

At the end of this lesson, students are expected to answer the following questions:
- What caused the large-scale migration into California after 1948?
- What conditions did migrants endure on the journey to California?
- When and why did the Gold Rush peak?
- How did the Gold Rush participants affect the existing communities in California and
create new ones?

This lesson will provide students with a classroom activity, lesson extension, and project ideas. The main lesson will require students to break up into learning groups and answer various open-ended questions. Once they have completed these questions they will engage in a group discussion. 

This lesson plan also includes all necessary readings and handouts. Self-contained lesson to grab and go!
