Miners Go For Gold

After spending two weeks studying about the groups of people who lived on the Great Plains during the period from 1850-1900, the 8th grade groups presented information about the farmers, the Native Americans, the cattle ranchers and the miners to the rest of the class. Nick, Bria, Ashley, Kyle and Jackie represented the miners. Since our school theme this year has to do with learning and building, each of the teachers has a yellow construction hat, which worked well as miners’ hats as the group sang their rendition of “I Want Gold!” We had cattle drives, railroad building, sod houses, “Old MacDonald”, great posters and really learn a lot about the time period.
