We watched "A More Perfect Union." Although we had covered the U.S. Constitution, in brief, on Constitution Day, my kids still thought we were governed by the Articles of Confederation. The Colonial Williamsburg portrayal of the discourse surrounding the formation of our current constitution cemented the concept that our current constitution is a change from where the colonies started. In addition, it allowed my kids to realize that conversations can be complex about the "how's" even when you agree on the what you want to achieve and attain. ...(more)

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

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)

Colonial Williamsburg is a fantastic resource for teaching history to any age. The videos are informative & interesting. My 11 year old wasn't interested in history at all until we started using Colonial Williamsburg...now she can't wait to see the next one & use the other resources. The quizzes are one of her favorites. Thank you for providing such a great opportunity for homeschoolers!
Denise N., Co-op Member
One of our favorites!!! We plan our schedules around these exciting days.
Vanessa Dorland, Co-op Member
I found this to be an absolutely outstanding addition to our homeschool curriculum. My daughter loved it and learned alot in a very short time. The activities are wonderful and really challenge the student. I will be purchasing this again.
Sandra Sherwood, Co-op Member
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.

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
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
Great value ... children very excited to participate with program ... could easily be all the history material you would need for the year ... works great for multiple age groups!
