Dan Moore was the silver medalist for Canada's National Team at the 1998 World Gold Panning Championships held in Coloma California. Dan, better known as "Yukon Dan", is a professional gold panner who brings his hands-on presentation to schools. Dan will follow the Prescribed Learning Outcomes that teachers focus on with their students. This workshop takes place in your own classroom where the students rotate to three different stations; they will pan for real gold, separate minerals with a magnet of fool's gold and then do a word search about mining terminology. Dan is more then happy to work within the teacher's curriculum to tailor his extremely interesting workshop. The historical knowledge the students receive is overwhelming, the atmosphere in the presentation room will be buzzing with Gold Fever. Whether you are teaching about our Canadian History, Social Studies, Rocks & Minerals, Gold Rushes or Earth & Science, give Yukon Dan a call.
Dan also has an extensive collection of gold related items such as nuggets, flakes, rare coins, and minerals (silver, quartz, copper, platinum, and fools gold). Yukon Dan is more than happy to teach the art of panning for gold to any eager audience.
Book early to avoid disappointment.
