This newspaper activity is meant to be used by groups who are either unable to visit our park or by educators looking for additional material to supplement their park visit.
Students using this "newspaper" are asked to develop their own dike character, put together a shopping list of needed supplies, plan a route to the Yukon, and to design a Klondike newspaper advertisement based on included examples.
To save the document files to your computer, mouse click the hotspot, then when ask to save or open, hit save. The word document is quite large and may take some time to download.

The Klondike Gold Rush has been described as "one of the weirdest and most useless movements in history. Over 70,000 people each wasted something like $1000 in a fruitless search for riches".
