Educational Resources for Stay Home, Save Lives

Outdoor school immerses 5th and 6th grade students in Oregon’s natural landscapes. Students develop new perspectives on the natural world, learn about themselves and their relationships with others, and engage directly with the ecosystems they are learning about in their classrooms. This transformative experience cannot be replicated at home or school, but students whose outdoor school experiences are cancelled due to COVID-19 can still meet some goals of outdoor school while following government recommended social distancing protocols. On this webpage, parents, guardians, and teachers can find links to resources to support learning experiences while schools are out of session.

Every Friday, we post weekly resource sets with nature observations, journal prompts, and online activities that parents/guardians and teachers can use to support students during the upcoming week. Please follow us on Twitter (@OROutdoorschool) or Facebook (@OROutdoorschool) to stay up-to-date with the weekly resource sets. You can find the same activities grouped by activity type (online resources, etc.) by following the links in the buttons above. 

If you have resources you would like to share with teachers and parents/guardians, please send them to outdoorschool@oregonstate.edu. Thank you!
