Our middle school students had the opportunity to step back in to history, 1828. We visited the gold mines in Dahlonega, Georgia. Twenty years before the 1849 Gold Rush, gold was discovered there. The students were able to see where it all happened, deep underground. Students also had the opportunity to pan for gold and some gems for themselves. We all walked away a little richer.
