Our family enjoyed the Colonial- Williamsburg electronic field trips and looked foreward to them every month. Asking questions after viewing segments of action and having the questions answered live during the broadcasts enhanced the learning experience greatly.

This program makes history come to life. My 12 year old daughter absolutely loves using the hands on tools and watching the realistic reenactments. We have been to Colonial Williamsburg, nothing takes the place of actually walking the grounds, but if you can not take that trip, this program is the next best thing. You are able to get up close and personal with the videos. (A front row seat!!!)

We used this program last year and plan to this year as well. They are offering DIFFERENT videos from last year!
Donna P. (Michigan), Co-op Member
We just finished up a unit on the US constitution. The videos on the segment "A More Perfect Union" fit in perfectly. They were entertaining, informative, and added variety to our study.
J. Lance, Co-op Member
My daughter has actually enjoyed the history lessons from Colonial-Williamsburg. That is a huge change from having to fight with her to do history lessons.

We watch the electronic field trips as a family and discuss them afterwards. We also look at the website materials together as well.
Theresa, Co-op Member
The Colonial-Williamsburg provided a good alternative to traditional history book learning. Our child watched with interest although a bit too young and would benefit more so in a few years. We will return and view again at about the age of 10 or older.
Lisa Widener, Co-op Member
We got these for the first time last year when my daughter was 10. She has watched them all repeatedly. She didn't care too much about the "live" sessions (she didn't have any questions she wanted to ask) but she does love the videos and games. She can tell me so much information about the various videos. This year I will also have her do additional research and right a report. Yes, we are definitely getting it again!

The Colonial Williamsburg Electronic Field Trips are a great way to enhance your social studies and history lessons. I have used the EFTs for a number of years, starting when we were studying the colonial period. My children all enjoyed them so much that they requested to do them the following years even though it meant deviating from our that year's history lessons.
For the wonderful price that is available through the Co-op I felt that we got our money's worth even if we didn't use all the resources every month. But if you do take full a...(more)

Our family LOVES the HERO program from Colonial Williamsburg! It is one of our favorite homeschool products, and we have all learned so much from these thoughtfully designed educational resources. Each topic is addressed with multiple learning activities to appeal to various learning styles, and include writing activities, graphic organizers, and role plays. The online interactive games are educational and enjoyable. The video segments depict historical events in a way that is accessible and interesting.

We have very much enjoyed our electronic field trips. It has been a fun way to extend our US history studies this year, and when we next study it again we probably will get this group buy again.
Ticia M, Co-op Member
I have enjoyed the EFTs. Every time it is to start my boys rally around the computer to watch... they love the other activities that are accessible via their website as part of the program. Each activity corresponds with the lesson. The video time is interactive with the ability to call in and also submit a video question. We love Williamsburg and this just gives a taste every month!!!
