Klondike Gold Rush, 1897-98: An Educator's Guide to America's "Last Grand Adventure."
Remick, Scott; Cook, Cathy
This student handbook provides an overview of the Klondike Alaska Gold Rush of 1897-98. The unit was designed for junior high school students but can be modified for different grade levels. A vocabulary list and worksheet accompanies the unit, along with a time line and map activity. A group activity requires students to work in teams to get their goods over the Chilkoot Pass and on to Dawson City and the Klondike. A "Gold Rush Jeopardy" game provides a review for the unit. Numerous photographs and other archival materials accompany the unit. (EH)
