This was an awesome series. My children are visual learners and I was able to use the series to reinforce what we had been learning. It really helped them "connect the dots." It dovetailed perfectly with our history curriculum (WinterPromise). I was also impressed with the length of each segment. It was just perfect for children. We have other history videos but most of the time the children have tuned out by the time the story has ended because they are for older students. I have told several other friends about this awesome resource. ...(more)

This is a fantastic program that has engaged my boys in history in an innovative way. As wonderful as the videos are, it's the interactive activities that really seem to change the way my kids understand historical conflicts. We've been recommending it to everyone we know. We love it and hope that it is available again next year.
Ellen A., 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
High quality, professional productions along with q & a sessions with both the pros & heroes...this is an amazing series & opportunity to experience history. This is not the usual; it goes beyond the basics to bring information to your history study that would otherwise take hours of research. You essentially get to go back in time as well as have an in-home historian for these very thought provoking fieldtrips. "Fieldtrip" doesn't do it justice; these are experiences. Our entire family of 4 gathers around the computer to watch them again &...(more)

The Colonial Williamsburg digital field trips were enjoyable and educational. We were able to use them throughout the year to supplement our regular American History curriculum. My both my sons (4th and 2nd grade) were able to participate in them.
J. Leeds, 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!
Lisa D, Co-op Member
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.
You cannot go wrong with t...(more)

My kids always looked forward to the electronic field trips from Colonial Williamsburg. I really appreciate they are saved so if you miss the original airing you can watch it at your convience. We went to Colonial Williamsburg this summer and it was neat to be able to relate the things we had learned from the electronic field trips to what we were seeing in person.
Veronica L, 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.
Susan O, 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!
