Hollywood Park students learn Gold Rush history in Coloma

e-Connections Post

Hollywood Park Elementary School’s fourth graders visited Coloma to get a first-hand lesson on California’s Gold Rush past.

Students spent the day panning for gold, putting on a skit and hiking.  Naturalists taught the students about the rich history of the Gold Rush. They learned the roles of James Marshall, John Sutter and Sam Brannan during that time period.

A barbecue lunch wrapped up the day.

And finally Eureka…it was time to get back on the bus for the ride home!
