  • Fourth Grade Learns the History of Gold Mining in North Carolina

    On Friday, 15th of April, 4th Grade went on a trip to Reed’s Goldmine. The children had the chance to explore different aspects of the goldmine through four activities. Panning for real gold was an exciting start to the trip. We started with pans of rocks and soil from the land around the goldmine. Our first task was to get rid of the soil and dirt from our pans by swirling water around the material. Next we had to remove the larger rocks; we then swirled our pans with water again and used the ridges on the side of the pan to sift the heavier gold from the other sediment. We found quite a few small pieces of gold – it won’t make us millionaires though, most of the pieces we found are worth less than a dollar!
