Mayers, Edith G.
Social Studies and the Young Learner, v20 n3 p12-15 Jan-Feb 2008
This article presents a social studies unit plan taught to fifth graders in a gifted resource class that infuses technology into student-centered activities. The unit demonstrates how the teacher and students were able to use the technology to learn about life during the Klondike Gold Rush. The goal of the unit was to show how the Klondike Gold Rush of 1896 was a significant era in both Canadian and United States history.
