Oregon Trail Education Resource Guide
The Oregon Trail Education Resource Guide was developed by BLM staff, Trail Tender Volunteers, and Eastern Oregon University. The 158-page Resource Guide is designed for use by teachers and other educators who are teaching Oregon Trail history. Some activities are designed for the classroom while others are specific to the Interpretive Center and would necessitate a field trip to the site. The guide is designed for use by fourth grade teachers who traditionally teach Oregon history, but many activities can be adapted to younger or older students. Copies are available at no charge to educators. Copies may be downloaded, or a hard copy can be mailed upon request. Teachers may make copies of any portion of the guide for classroom use.
