4th Grade Brings the California Gold Rush to Life - from Home!

Fourth grade students would usually be embarking on their annual trip to Coloma Outdoor Discovery School for a multi-night experience that takes students on a hands-on Gold Rush adventure. 

The fourth grade teaching team created an amazing menu of Gold Rush-themed activities that are bringing this moment in California history to life right in our students' homes. From churning homemade butter to making johnny cakes, practicing square-dancing to composing poetry that captures life for gold-seekers, from building miniature log cabins to sewing their very own bonnets, our students are getting creative and stepping into their roles as gold-panning pioneers all week long.
