I have purchased this program for the past two years and my son really enjoys it. We go through all the extensive educational materials during the week prior to the live telecast. There's something exciting about watching it live and hearing all the questions from students around the country.

Students have the opportunity to submit questions via email or video and they are answered by the historians. My son submitted a question and was answered promptly and thoroughly within 24 hours. I was very impressed with their customer service.

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
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)

We loved the Colonial Williamsburg electronic field trip series. We have been members of Colonial Williamsburg for a number of years, and this series helps us to feel that we are there, without the travel! The teacher helps that are included can make this a really amazing curriculum choice, or you can just enjoy watching the movies and discuss them. They bring history to life!
Debbie M., Co-op Member
If you are studying American History this year, I just can't recommend Colonial Williamsburg Electronic Field Trip series enough. These are really terrific shows and the supporting documentation is voluminous. You can use as much or as little as you like... but the value is terrific!

Each video presentation comes with background articles, lesson plans, time lines, glossaries, copies of primary sources, bibliographies and web links for additional learning and activities.

This is an awesome program that is fun to watch. The shows come ...(more)

The Williamsburg e-trips are a fantastic addition to any curricula. We've used them the past 2 years to supplement our history studies for multiple ages - preschool to middle school.

They also make for a great group study with other families. The teacher study guides are first rate - wonderful background information, high quality illustrations, and engaging and informative activities to reinforce and further develop the lessons from the program.

The online activities are fun and informative. My children have even called and asked the...(more)

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.
K. Avery, Co-op Member
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!

My children and I thoroughly enjoyed participating in the Colonial-Williamsburg virtual field trips. We all learned so much!
It was well worth the nominal fee! What a wonderful deal. I highly recommend it.
Bridget Williams, Co-op Member
We have enjoyed Colonial Williamsburg for 3 years now. It has been so fun to watch each episode and learn through the Q&A times. We decided not to keep this great value to ourselves & now several families enjoy it as well. Kids of various ages can benefit from this educational experience--we can attest to that! You won't be disappointed, especially when you are able to get it at the Co-op's best price!
