To the Gold Rush!

Create an annotated map about travel to California during the Gold Rush. First, draw the route you researched on the map below. Then add numbers and captions to different locations describing details about the trip.

For example, if you are showing the sailing route around South America you might place a number at the tip of South America. At the bottom of the page, you would place that same number with a one sentence description of the stormy weather at this point in the journey.
