We used this last year and my daughter loved it. She is on the spectrum and was able to 'see' what was going on in history. This was much more alive than just reading about history. This put pictures to history making it easier to remember.
Thank you

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.

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 really well-crafted program. What we found so neat was that the same actors that actually work in Colonial Williamsburg were the ones in these programs. We somehow felt that we knew them because we had "met" them at Williamsburg. The teacher's resources are great and help us to get every tid-bit out the programs. Highly recommend for folks doing an American History study.

My kids and I have enjoyed Colonial Williamsburg. They have a plethora of fun information and great photos on their website. For the Electronic Field Trips, I love that the scripts for the videos are available. My 5th grader is a great reader but doesn't follow the videos well. We started acting out the scripts before watching the video. She understands and retains it so much better this way. My 8th grader loves the games and often plays those on her own time. She has never enjoyed history as much as she does now!

This is our second year using Colonial-Williamsburg virtual field trips. Both my boys (6th & 3rd grade) love them. It engages them with the live reenactment of history. The field trips have ignited my 6th's interest in history. Purchasing this through Homeschool Buyers Co-op is the added benefit you can't beat the price. Thank HSBC for providing homeschool families such high quality educational products at an affordable cost.

I was not sure what to expect when we purchased the Colonial Williamsburg Field Trips for the year, but I have to say we LOVED it. Despite the glaringly absent TRUE balance of Christianity in the speech and the roots of the speakers, we did really enjoy the presentation. Live questions and answers, children focused as being able to affect the future and preserve history and engaging presentation all made this WELL worth the money! Also gives info on fulfillment of school subject requirements which helps prepare reports. Gives an impressive ad...(more)

We love these Electronic Field Trips! I personally learned more about the War of 1812 and the reasons for the War than than I ever did from my textbooks in school. They are extremely well done.

I plan to continue buying this subscription and am thankful for the discount through the Co-op. I have told others and 3 other families that I know of directly have purchased them as a result. I highly recommend these if you want another way to bring history to life.
Laura D., Co-op Member
We purchased the whole year of online field trips and were amazed at their high quality. My children studied Colonial America this past school year and really were interested in the "movies." I was happy with their rapture for them and how much they learned! History became alive for them for the very first time. Thank you for offering this service through the Homeschool Buyers Co-op. We couldn't have afforded it any other way. It was a real treat!
Stacy McCann, Co-op Member
We loved going on electronic field trips to Colonial Williamsburg -- and it sounds cool to tell other people what we're doing. Williamsburg produces a wealth of teaching material that is good to review before seeing the field trips. I had to get a whole binder just for this. There are always interesting games and worksheets for kids. For instance, we enjoyed playing a game about what Daniel Boone's wife did all day -- we were exhausted just from the game. The field trips feature prepared videos and are interspersed with 'live' interviews, l...(more)
