Impressive! Much better than I anticipated! The field trips are very interactive. I thought they would show a drama, then follow up with questions and answers. Not so! My students were engaged throughout the whole program. They interwove interviews, student video questions (which were submitted beforehand), live student questions from phone calls, and dramatic presentations. Factoring in the "live" portion of this could cause the program to feel disjointed but this was not the case. Everything was well put together and flowed seamlessly....(more)

We really enjoyed the entire series of electronic field trips. The reenactments helped bring history to life and the question and answer sessions helped further explain the topic. After each field trip, we would discuss what we just watched and how the issues they had then may or may not still affect us today and what it would have been like to live in that time period. We plan to sign up for another year of the field trips if it is offered.

We love Williamsburg, but aren't able to visit very often. The EFTs are almost like being there, with the added benefit of being able to glean information from the history experts and re-enactors. We used this program for our two youngest boys and they really enjoyed it. Much more interesting to them to watch history come alive on the computer than to read a book about history. We will sign up for the EFTs again for the 2009-2010 school year! I told everyone I knew about this group buy opportunity.

My family looks forward to each of the Colonial-Williamsburg presentations. I record each up coming presentation on each month's calendar so I do not double book us to do something else that day. As a certified teacher, I find the re-creations so much more interesting than reading a book. My favorite techniques during the presentations are that the history lessons are taught from more than one perspective. For example, in the "Emissaries of Peace" the re-enactment is given by 3 different points of view. The Native American tell it from the...(more)

My kids looked forward to their "field trip" every month last year. My son called in questions every month and they were answered with kindness and patience. We will be purchasing the package again this year. Thanks!

This is our third year doing the Colonial Williamsburg field trips. We have even been to Colonial Williamsburg twice and hope to visit again. And yet, we find that these are a nice addition to those experiences as well as to our curriculum. These field trip reenactments, as well as Colonial Williamsburg, help bring American history alive. This year we are doing world history, but my kids still wanted to do these electronic field trips! Thanks for this offering, because without the group buy, we could never afford this great experience.

What an exciting way to make history come alive! My kids and I gather with anticipation to see Colonial America come to life through the Colonial Williamsburg Electronic Field Trips. They are always looking to see if their questions get answered so that they can try to call in and have a live historian answer something that most peaked their curiosity. This one is worth every penny and then some!!
