Yippee! There’s gold in the hills somewhere! Make a pretend map so you can find the treasures.
Life during the California Gold Rush must have been tough. Miners endured lots of hardships and lawlessness. The excitement of panning for gold---and the possibility of striking it rich---must have made up for difficulties the 49ers faced.
Imagine you’re a prospector following a hand-drawn map of uncharted territory. You’re hoping that it will lead you to a stream of gold flakes. Here’s one way to draw a treasure map of Western terrain.
On a recycled file folder or paper grocery bag, plot out the imaginary routes and landmarks with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils. They really erase, so you can always change your mind and correct mistakes.
Fill in trails and any roads with Crayola Multicultural Markers. Their natural colors are just right for rugged terrain.
Add details with Crayola Twistables. Try making signposts, mountains, and streams to help explorers know where to go.
To make your map look like it’s really been used, tear the edges. Crumple up the map to give it a wrinkled look. You’re ready to strike out for gold!
