Lesson 3: Field Trip to National Park Site
Visiting the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park is a great way for students to become better educated about the gold rush. While the field trip is not a mandatory part of the unit, you and your students will find it an extremely valuable experience. Students see primary documents, dramatic photos, recreations of an outfit and mining techniques, and a short film. The knowledgeable park rangers lead guided tours and answer questions. Most importantly, by going to the park students get visit the part of Seattle where it all took place, historic Pioneer Square. A great bonus is free admission and tours!
OBJECTIVE: To prepare students for a visit to the Klondike Gold Rush N.H.P. To provide students prior knowledge and create a purpose for the visit to the Park.
TIME: Transportation Time (location dependent) and Program Time (30 to 90 minutes)
