Lesson Plans and Worksheets
Through partners and in collaboration with teachers, the Siuslaw National Forest has a Cape Perpetua Curriculum designed to meet Oregon STEM requirements.
The links below will take you to the curriculum where you will find lesson plans, activities and classroom presentations. Teachers are welcome to use the materials on your own or with the assistance of Cape Perpetua Rangers.
- Focusing activities is critical to a successful field trip to the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area..
Lesson plans and worksheets will help students draw deeper meanings from exhibits and trailside features during their visit. The majority of the activities have students use evidence found along trails and facts in order to test hypotheses. The indoor activities are helpful on rainy days when large groups of students may all be in the Visitor Center at the same time.
