Alright class, who can tell me about the California GoldRush?
I can Mrs. Humbug! The California Gold Rush started in 1948 at a place called stutters mill. They tried to keep the gold a secret but failed.
Correct! But who where the 49-Niners
Wrong! The 49-Niners Were all of the miners who rushed to California in 1849!
That's easy! They are a football team!
Some camps, however, turned into full cities the largest being San Francisco
Correct Jamie. But what were the conditions of the miner camps?
Miner Camps? Is that like football camps...
They were horrible! There was a large amount of crime and almost no sanitation!
Not to mention, the work was hard and disease ran rampant.
Always read the teachers comment first then the kid in the red hoodie, then the girl in the green shirt, and then the girl in the gray shirt.
Right! But how many people actually, "Struck it Rich?"
Oh wait! I remember this one! Almost no one became rich because it was so expensive to live in California at that time
Right! Who can tell me how much Gold was actually found from 1848-1853 when the Gold Rush finally calmed down
Two Billion Dollars!
correct! After 1853 mining continued until 1860, but mostly by big companies that used expensive equipment to get more gold. Other than that, good job guys!
