Sea Grant educator helps students understand Oregon history

In celebration of the 150th anniversary of Oregon Statehood, the state Capitol is the setting for “150 Years of Statehood, 150 Million Years In the Making,” an Oregon Historical Society exhibit exploring the state’s rich heritage through its geological landmarks and history.

To help teachers, their students and other visitors get the most from the information-rich exhibit, the OHS asked Nancee Hunter, director of education for Oregon Sea Grant’s programs at the Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport, to write a guide to the exhibit. The guide provides discussion points to ponder before visiting the exhibit, and questions about the state’s geologic and human history to discuss during and after your visit.

The teacher guide is available for free download at, and also from Oregon Sea Grant:
