Going West Project and Mining in Nevada

TimeDec. 16, 2012

from:Bidell, Barbara

to:Nevada History

This week, we continue with our projects regarding Nevada's role in the Gold Rush, and the silver boom following the discovery of the Comstock Lode. Students will be finishing those projects on Tuesday. Monday's homework will be to complete most of those projects. The rubric is in your child's drive. I will be sending that out via an e-mail if you would like to work with your son or daughter on that project.

On Wednesday afternoon, we will be heading to the McCaw School of Mines for our field trip. Students will be enhancing their studies on mining through some hands-on activities. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to drop me a line at bidellb@nhalv.org.
