Alaska Gold Rush

In the midst of so many gold rush shows on television, I figured I would hook kids into a lesson with some history of what started the shows and how the price of gold has changed. This chart is a very accessible way for students to see that the reason Felix Pedro started prospecting in Fairbanks is still a means of making a living here today. There are plenty of families that own mines and bring back quality gold to be assayed just like there are plenty of people employed by the Kinross Gold Corporation.
