OUR ENTIRE FAMILY IS LOVING THIS!! AWESOME!
MRS. WALTER CHESHIRE, Co-op Member
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
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)
Jodie, Co-op Member
We really enjoyed the entire series of electronic field trips. The reenactments helped bring history to life and the question and answer sessions helped further explain the topic. After each field trip, we would discuss what we just watched and how the issues they had then may or may not still affect us today and what it would have been like to live in that time period. We plan to sign up for another year of the field trips if it is offered.
J Cameron, Co-op Member
We have always loved Williamsburg and the quality experience they offer. We knew this would be a good choice, and these field trips have not disappointed us. They are fun, informative, creative, and interesting... plus it connects us with students across the country! It's also a nice change of pace from our normal school routine. Thanks Co-op for making this affordable!
Sally L., Co-op Member
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)
Denise Cutshall - homeschool mom, Co-op Member
We enjoyed these 'field trips' alot. Our kids saw things they only read about. I wish I could have had this with my older daughter, whose already graduated.

"Yes!" When I ask if we should order it again, both 11 and 13 year old said yes. Other moms from the Co-op have asked about it, because my kids told theirs. It will be one of those things we repeat.
Lois S., Co-op Member
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
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
This was such a great value for the money! There is no way we could afford a field trip to experience all that Williamsburg has to offer, but this was a close second.
