This kit is packed full of supplies and learning experiences centered around the famous gold rush of 1849, a significant event in the history of the early United States. Learners will read What Was the Gold Rush?, travel to California on ship or covered wagon to meet a gold miner, discuss the causes and effects of mining, and write their own newspaper article announcing the gold strike. They’ll also create their own gold mining boomtown, pan for gold, build a sluice box, and more!

We’ve divided the learning experiences into eight sections, and we recommend doing the activities in the order suggested as some build upon the next. However, you don’t need to complete all the lesson activities at once if that’s too much for your schedule. Just pause, and pick up where you left off next time. Doing these activities two days a week will take four weeks to complete the unit.

The activities in this kit were designed for K to 4th graders. But we know kids are at all different levels and interests, so feel free to skip or add-to an activity if it isn’t right for your child(ren). That’s what Schoolhouse Discoveries are all about – having fun learning and finding ways that best fit your needs.
