We enjoyed these 'field trips' alot. Our kids saw things they only read about. I wish I could have had this with my older daughter, whose already graduated.

"Yes!" When I ask if we should order it again, both 11 and 13 year old said yes. Other moms from the Co-op have asked about it, because my kids told theirs. It will be one of those things we repeat.

Pretty neat videos about our nations history. The Q&A is especially useful. We are studying early American history this year so they are a nice supplement to our curriculum.
L Dickinson, Co-op Member
Loved the Electronic Field Trips! We started using after we spent a week at Colonial Williamsburg. Knew the Field Trips would be great if it were anything like our experience there. Brings history to life! My 2 boys(9,14) stayed interested, and I have enjoyed watching as well. We have used it for 2 years. Like the feature of being able to go back and see them later. Our internet service does not allow for the 1 hr. live version, so we have to go back and view later. You can use from any device that has internet access with Quick time or Wi...(more)

This is a fantastic resource! A few years ago while in Colonial Williamsburg, I stopped at the Electronic Field Trip booth at the Visitor Center. The cost was prohibitive for one child. I was thrilled when the Co-op offered this group buy. The electronic field trips and the additional teaching materials add so much information to our study of American History. Our entire family enjoys each trip and we look forward to the next one. We will definitely sign up for each new year. Thank you!

Thank you for the opportunity to view Colonial-Williamsburg and the plethora of resources attached to the unit. The timing could not have been more perfect, as we were offered at the same time a viewing of a play of the same time period. Our son so enjoys visual and auditory components to his schooling and this study aided in his pleasurable learning experience. The resources that were offered to complement the video were spectacular! As we review, I play to go back to some of those resources as well. So, I guess one could say it is a gift...(more)

THis is an awesome program. My daughter learned alot and had fun doing so. I am ordering again and hoping to get the biggest discount possible ! I have even bragged to friends of mine to get it to supplement their regular school curricullum
Sandy,S., Co-op Member
I appreciate being able to access Colonial-Williamsburg on our computer because it sure beats the price of driving/flying there, hotel room, etc. We connected my computer to the television which is large enough for us to view this in comfort. We get the 'feel' of it and being able to use it for our kids to learn. I have told other homeschoolers about this and they, too, were very interested in being able to use this for our American History classes.
Janet Hurguy, Co-op Member
My kids have loved the on-line field trips. We are currently living in Senegal, Africa so the recent field trip about the slave trade was particularly interesting to my kids. We had already visited a slave trade house in Dakar on Goree Island. The field trip made history that much more meaningful and understandable.
D. Jones, Co-op Member
We have always loved Williamsburg and the quality experience they offer. We knew this would be a good choice, and these field trips have not disappointed us. They are fun, informative, creative, and interesting... plus it connects us with students across the country! It's also a nice change of pace from our normal school routine. Thanks Co-op for making this affordable!
Sally L., Co-op Member
We have purchased the field trips since my oldest was in 3rd grade. The family loves our History time. The children hurry to complete school so they can play the games and do the monthly activities. The children beg to have more Colonial-Williamsburg Field trips! I am hoping we will always have the chance to do a group buy.
