In C4 we were learning about gold just before we went on camp.well we were learning about gold it made me think about what I would do if I ever got given gold or found gold I had lots of different ideas! I was really interested in learning about gold and how it was found. We learnt that you don't pan for gold in the gold mines of Waihi because it is all underground and is inside the quartz. The mine in Waihi is an open mine.   When we got back to school we looked at Gold mining in Otago and completed a sketch about a story she told us about living in the camps.

These are some of our pieces of art from our study:
