Gold!

This term the Year 5/6 students will be learning about ‘Gold’.

Today we heard a rumour… that Gold had been found within our school. Witnesses disclosed that the gold nugget was found towards the 3/4 equipment. So we ventured out to see if we could ‘strike it rich!’.

We stumbled on lots of gold nuggets. Some bigger than others.

When we get back to our classroom we found out what gold was worth for the day – $42.48 per gram!!!

We then had to use a variety of scales to weight our gold nuggets and then calculate their worth.

Did you enjoy the activity? 

Did you find gold? How much was it worth?
