It's been a long day at school and you're exhausted. You lay down to take a nap in the sun and begin to dream. Your dream takes you back into the late 1840's during the California Gold Rush...

Take a look at this PowerPoint presentation to get you thinking about the big decision of joining the Gold Rush.
