Last week, we talked about the rumors that spread around the world in 1848 that there were mountains of gold in California. We looked at political cartoons and newspaper clippings from the time. The learners laughed when they saw cartoon images of people carrying big boulders of gold on their backs, and read accounts of gold lined rivers. They began sketching their own cartoons, depicting the unbelievable rumors of gold at the time. Ask your learner what they decided to draw! Or better yet, stop by and look at them hanging in the classroom!
