North Carolina Museum of History

The History of North Carolina
Stone tools dating from 12,000 to 1000 B.C.E. that were used by the state’s earliest inhabitants. Although they left no written history, their tools tell us about their lives.
Thank you for visiting the NC Museum of History, I hope you enjoyed your trip and learned new things about the history of our state!
Once you have finished your Field Trip and your scavenger hunt, you will need to complete an assessment. To do so, please open your thinkbook notebook and answer the following questions about 3 of the subjects explored:
1. What did you learn that surprised you?
2. Did anything you learned change your perspective about North Carolina and it's history?
3. In 2-4 sentences, sum up what you learned about the subject explored.
