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!

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!!!
Jeanne, Co-op Member
We love anything from Colonial Williamsburg. And getting it [at the Homeschool Buyers Co-op] here always has the best discounts! Colonial Williamsburg is also a great way of getting reluctant kids to learn about that era.
Keri, 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
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the Colonial-Williamsburg field trips. The actors were very good, the information was good, and being able to ask questions was a great benefit. My children enjoyed watching the program and doing the interactive activities and learning more from the downloadable teacher information. My son asked if we could join again, and of course I said "Yes". It was very beneficial to us.

We LOVE the Colonial-Williamsburg virtual field trips. This is our first year with this package and I am sure it will be a staple in our home from now on. I was amazed at the caliber and quality of the first two sessions we have attended. The children (5th and 2nd) were completely engaged and excited throughout the presentations. Additionally both have taken away from each session questions to pursue and further their knowledge. I love when and educational product so easily inspires them to seek more information.

My kids and I have enjoyed Colonial Williamsburg. They have a plethora of fun information and great photos on their website. For the Electronic Field Trips, I love that the scripts for the videos are available. My 5th grader is a great reader but doesn't follow the videos well. We started acting out the scripts before watching the video. She understands and retains it so much better this way. My 8th grader loves the games and often plays those on her own time. She has never enjoyed history as much as she does now!
Kris T., Co-op Member
Thank you for the opportunity to view Colonial-Williamsburg and the plethora of resources attached to the unit. The timing could not have been more perfect, as we were offered at the same time a viewing of a play of the same time period. Our son so enjoys visual and auditory components to his schooling and this study aided in his pleasurable learning experience. The resources that were offered to complement the video were spectacular! As we review, I play to go back to some of those resources as well. So, I guess one could say it is a gift...(more)

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)
J. DeVance, Co-op Member
These are great videos that really help make the history lesson come alive. Watching the actors discuss these situations and seeing how it impacts the lives of different people helps teach lessons in a way that stays with the viewer. Although we have focused primarily on the videos, I will be incorporating some of the teaching lessons as well and am glad they already have that ready to go. This has been a great supplement to our history curriculum and the price through the Co-Op is a great value.
