Being able to participate in a virtual field trip lets my daughter feel more "connected". As home schoolers, it can be difficult to participate in field trips, especially out of state, so this was a true blessing.The video stream was very clear, and the actors were authentic. Following along with the script adds extra "stay power" for what is being taught. We enjoyed the experience, and we look forward to many more virtual field trips!!

The Colonial Williamsburg EFT's were enjoyed by our entire family!! After our weeklong trip to Colonial Williamsburg and participation in various workshops there, the EFT's were the PERFECT addition to our study of American History. Our children looked forward to not only viewing each exciting and informative segment but calling in to ask their questions and hearing the questions of and responses to other students across our nation. History is more than memorizing facts from a text - names, places, people. (yawn) It is alive and breathing! T...(more)

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.

I appreciate being able to access Colonial-Williamsburg on our computer because it sure beats the price of driving/flying there, hotel room, etc. We connected my computer to the television which is large enough for us to view this in comfort. We get the 'feel' of it and being able to use it for our kids to learn. I have told other homeschoolers about this and they, too, were very interested in being able to use this for our American History classes.
Janet Hurguy, 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 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)

We loved going on electronic field trips to Colonial Williamsburg -- and it sounds cool to tell other people what we're doing. Williamsburg produces a wealth of teaching material that is good to review before seeing the field trips. I had to get a whole binder just for this. There are always interesting games and worksheets for kids. For instance, we enjoyed playing a game about what Daniel Boone's wife did all day -- we were exhausted just from the game. The field trips feature prepared videos and are interspersed with 'live' interviews, l...(more)

The Colonial Williamsburg field trips were so easy to use and my children really enjoyed them. The supplemental materials were a great tool as well! We printed them out and used them before the field trip aired. I loved that we could view them all year long, over and over again! I can't wait to see the new ones!
Jana Walker, 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!

This is our fourth year participating in this Group Buy. Wonderful! Professionally produced! Top-notch! Great additional to any history curriculum.
