Life in Mining Camps
Making a Class Presentation
Life in the mining camps was not like life "back east." Information about the camps comes from primary sources, like diaries and newspaper articles. Using the Internet and library, find sources about life in the mining camps.
Your sources might include:
- images of mines, miners, or miner's shacks
- images of items that the general store sold to miners
- tales of the gold fields
- information about the diversity of cultures in the camps
