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.
Susan O, Co-op Member
We purchased the whole year of online field trips and were amazed at their high quality. My children studied Colonial America this past school year and really were interested in the "movies." I was happy with their rapture for them and how much they learned! History became alive for them for the very first time. Thank you for offering this service through the Homeschool Buyers Co-op. We couldn't have afforded it any other way. It was a real treat!
Stacy McCann, Co-op Member
This series of electronic fieldtrips is wonderful. We don't live close enough to participate in person, but we watch the videos and the kids learn so much. I highly recommend this!
.holli-marie, Co-op Member
What wonderful programming! My children were wrapped up in each session. They didn't mind doing the student materials and on-line programs. Thanks for making history come alive!
Gail H., 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
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!!
Rachel Thompson, Co-op Member
I was very impressed with both the quality of the presentations and the variety of the student activities. The actors were engaging in their discussions of history and each story line raised thought-provoking questions for us to ponder. Well worth the time and money we spent!
C. Hegland, Co-op Member
We are huge fans of Colonial Williamsburg, so it is a thrill to invite them into our home once a month during the school year through the Electronic Field Trips. My kids highly anticipate these delightful diversions, watching the storylines with favorite actors, engaging with historic people through question and answer, playing wonderfully designed on-topic computer games and even receiving e-mails from historic people in reply to personal queries! My kids enjoy all the activities as a mini-break/diversion from the regular school schedule. L...(more)
Laurie Hackett, Co-op Member
This is our third year doing the Colonial Williamsburg field trips. We have even been to Colonial Williamsburg twice and hope to visit again. And yet, we find that these are a nice addition to those experiences as well as to our curriculum. These field trip reenactments, as well as Colonial Williamsburg, help bring American history alive. This year we are doing world history, but my kids still wanted to do these electronic field trips! Thanks for this offering, because without the group buy, we could never afford this great experience.
Debbie P., Co-op Member
Wonderful! It's geared more for upper elementary/jr. high grades but my 2nd grader enjoyed the presentation as much as his fifth grade brother did. Very informative. My boys want to watch it again this evening with the rest of the family. We are looking forward to the rest of the series in the upcoming months.
