Socials 10-3: Gold mining techniques

Today I started by telling a story of my own experience with gold fever and then we watched a short video explaining some of the ins and outs of gold panning from one of B.C. real experts, the recently deceased Bill Barlee.  Here is my sketchnote:

Here is a link to the ten-minute video.

I then showed a short clip of the Cornish wheel in action at the Barkerville Historic Site.  From there we set to work investigating aspects of gold mining (historic or contemporary) that we were wondering about.  We ended the class by sharing in small groups.  I was pleased with how well everyone worked again today.

There is no homework unless you missed Friday's class and are behind on the study guides.
