Westward Expansion- California Gold Rush

I went west for the California Gold Rush because, I thought that I could possibly get rich and maybe start a business or company and do some other things with the gold I had found. Gold was found in 1848 by James Wilson Marshall at Sutter’s Mill in Coloma, California. When people found out, everyone rushed to California through wagon trains, which eventually California became a boomtown. Before the Gold Rush happened a town where gold was found used to be a ghost town. A little while after the Gold Rush, there soon was the very first Transcontinental Railroad in 1869 in California, which was a faster way to get to places than just using wagon trains.

5 vocabulary words: Gold Rush,  boomtown, wagon trains, ghost town, Transcontinental (railroad)

Life in 5th Grade

5th grade has lots of new things from 4th grade… for example: We have bathroom passass, we have 5 teachers, there’s no writing staar, we take are backpacks to every class, we have hall meetings, there’s a science staar, we get more involved with American history and science, and even more different things. This year i’m looking forward in doing lots of science experiments, passing all of the staar tests, getting A’s, become better at reading and science, read more, I want to make new friends in school, church, etc. I want to do whatever I can do to get ready for middle school next year! It’s very, very, VERY hard without Jenna this year, but i really hope sometime this year me and my Mom can go visit her in Tennessee. I hope that I can get more involved with Volleyball and dance as well. I know that 5th grade might be harder than 4th but, if you just listen to your teachers, do what you’re told and be kind to EVERYONE then you’ll have a great and fun year, trust me!! I’m very excited for the things that we will do in 5th grade, and I hope 5th grade will be a year I will remember.
