Your tweens are going to love this California Gold Rush activity. It should definitely be one of the American history activities in your homeschool.
In 1848, gold was first discovered in California. Then, in 1849, our country saw the largest mass migration it has ever seen. The men who left everything behind were risk takers and adventure seekers. They wanted their share of the riches coming from the earth.
Gold fever was spreading!
I’ve written this California Gold Rush Notebooking and Activity Unit for you and your teen to use while studying the California Gold Rush. It’s not only a great resource to guide your lesson planning, but it’s also an excellent way to keep track of everything you discover.
