Learning about the California Gold Rush is so much fun!

Phoebe Hearst Elementary School fourth graders traveled to Coloma Outdoor Discovery School in Coloma, California to take a step back to the 1800s.

Students walked in the footsteps of the ‘49ers learning about the culture, music, folklore and environment.

A three-mile hike led students to the James Marshall Gold Discovery State Park. Upon their return to present day, the kids getting off the bus were brimming with newfound knowledge!
