PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

One of the most significant events in Australian history is that of the gold rushes. When gold was discovered it generated gold fever where people from far and wide made their way to the gold fields to try their luck and strike it rich.

This Gold Rush WebQuest will assist your students to gain a greater general understanding of this important event in Australian history. With a focus on mining methods, general gold facts, life on the goldfield, women’s experience, the Chinese experience and the Eureka Stockade, your students will practice their research skills, finding key ideas and skimming/scanning for information.

Get your students to follow the web links to answer the questions.

There are 3 different webpages used for this WebQuest and they are noted on the particular page.

Create the booklet as you go, simply cut around the dotted lines and staple to create your Gold Rush Flip Book.

Included as a bonus are a page of possible Gold Rush activities to do alongside this Flip Book project.
