Eureka! Judah kids discover a fun learning experience

e-Connections Post Theodore Judah

California history came alive for Theodore Judah Elementary School fourth graders in teacher Sandra Gambirazio’s class during their recent trip to Coloma.

The students participated in the Coloma Outdoor Discovery School’s overnight program, which taught them about Gold Rush history, geography, economy and the culture of the time.

Students got to feel what it was like to live during that time as they panned for gold to buy goods, learned to barter and work for what they needed and to cooperate in groups.

Parent volunteers generously gave of their time to support the o

pportunity. A fun and engaging learning time was had by all!
