The Kadima 4th and 5th grade are spending the next 2 days in the State capital exploring their social studies units and the development of the west. Today, they visited Sutter's Mill, just outside of Sacramento. Gold was found at Sutter's Mill setting off the California Gold Rush. Students engaged in experiential learning by mining gold themselves at the south fork of the American River. Students then spent time in Caloma learning from preservationists about life and culture of the mining days, including an interactive dramatic experience.
Overall, they are all engaged in learning and looking forward to more learning tomorrow.
