Amazing Field Trip to Coloma
My amazing Field Trip to Coloma By Lucario The Golden Bears My field trip to Coloma was exciting. It was our first field trip of the year. Once we arrived at Coloma we looked at a replica of Sutter’s sawmill. Then we did a scavenger hunt around Coloma. My team and I were answering about the Gold Rush. Then we went on a hike to the American River where James Marshall actually built the sawmill. When we came back to the parking lot Mr.Lamarr started giving a speech about racial prejudice during the gold rush about non-white miners.
Chinese miners were beaten and had their homes destroyed. Then my class went on a scavenger hunt around Coloma. After that we ate lunch. At the end of lunch Peter had jelly doughnuts ready for his birthday. I dripped down all the jelly from the doughnut all over my mouth.Eating the doughnuts was my favorite part of the whole field trip. We went on a hike up a mountain. On the way we saw graves of miners that have died from mining. When we reached the top of the mountain we saw a 20 feet tall monument of James Marshall. Mr.Lamarr gave another speech. Then we went all the way down the mountain to the American River. Mr. Lamarr gave us a panning lesson. Then the class started panning for 30 minutes. Finally we went back to school. I went to Bridges with Richard when we arrived at school.
