Mrs. Herrmann's 5th graders had the gold rush fever in their classroom. If you were enough lucky to be one of the few who were there in 1848, you could strike it rich! But as more and more people rushed for the gold, some were left with hardly any, or none at all. (Luckily, at the end of our activity our wealthiest miners shared with those latecomers!)
