Fort Raleigh National Historic Site is a great place for students to explore a variety of subjects, from the history of the Lost Colony to the role this area played in the Civil War. 

Explore the park during a class field trip, on your own, or with a park ranger. If your school is unable to visit Fort Raleigh, find some suggested readings to help spice up your lessons.
