Sharing the Information

  1. Each Certificate of Residence is color coded. Join the group with the same colored stripe.
  2. In your group, there is a miner, a fisherman, a service provider, a railroad worker and a farmer. Each person will share his or her job profile with the group. Each person must speak out loud to the group.
  3. After sharing, design a poster that the Six Companies can use in China to show job opportunities in Gold Mountain. Be positive and encourage immigration to the American West. Make one poster for your group.
  4. Write a letter to a close friend in China who is thinking of emigrating. Be very honest about what that friend will encounter when he comes to America. Include all the job opportunities, the dangers and the laws that he will face. Make one letter from your group.
