We have been enjoying these Colonial Williamsburg virtual field trips for several years! My now 3rd and 9th graders are engaged, entertained, and educated as they watch and participate in the professionally done live videos. Each year has new dramas, interviews, and live question/answer sessions. We'll be signing up again next year!
Marjorie B., Co-op Member
My children have spent hours on the website. They absolutely love it, and they are learning in the process. We are looking forward to the virtual field trips. Thank you so much for having this resource available for us.
Lora P., Co-op Member
Our family really enjoyed participating in this program. It was definitely worthwhile for us to subscribe to the series for the year, because we were able to do so much more with each episode than we could have done simply by watching them on tv.

My kids really enjoyed the interactive aspect, being able to play online games, and surveys made the experience all the more enjoyable. As a busy homeschooling mom, I certainly appreciated being able to watch the episodes at our leisure, rather than being tied down to a specific date and time....(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!

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!!
Dr. Mary Alice Bright, Co-op Member
Do not miss this opportunity to bring history alive for your children! We love being transported back to Colonial times! The field trips to Colonial Williamsburg make a critical part of my children's education come alive. Children need to feel more connected to our country's foundation and as a teacher of government and critical thinking classes for many homeschoolers, I find the field trips to Colonial Williamsburg invaluable. The "trips" not only entertain, but are also informative and challenge the children to make connections often misse...(more)
Leslee Dirnberger, Co-op Member
This has been an outstanding investment for our homeschool. The field trips are entertaining AND educational. However, I think my favorite part may be the follow up lessons that really dig into the subject matter. This program makes you stop and think about what things really might have been like in Colonial times and we have a better understanding of the very complicated nature of many issues which we have not see in other curriculum. We are able to put ourselves in some of the situations and discuss, "What would I do?"

We will defin...(more)

My son loved this program and was amazed he could actually interact with the programs. The quality of these productions was excellent. We will be returning for another year!
K. Briggs, Co-op Member
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
Thank you for offering the electronic field trips. Our whole family enjoyed them and learned so much.
