Impressive! Much better than I anticipated! The field trips are very interactive. I thought they would show a drama, then follow up with questions and answers. Not so! My students were engaged throughout the whole program. They interwove interviews, student video questions (which were submitted beforehand), live student questions from phone calls, and dramatic presentations. Factoring in the "live" portion of this could cause the program to feel disjointed but this was not the case. Everything was well put together and flowed seamlessly....(more)

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.

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.

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.

We just enjoyed the last Colonial Williamsburg Electronic Field Trip of the school year today and are already looking forward to next year. This treat has become a big part of our homeschooling, as the kids look forward to it all month! Then we take the afternoon off to watch it, complete with popcorn. Afterwards the kids get to do the additional activities.

It's a real reward (and great learning experience) for our children, and I want to make sure it continues. I haven't written a review before, but would like to if it would help you...(more)

Our family LOVES the HERO program from Colonial Williamsburg! It is one of our favorite homeschool products, and we have all learned so much from these thoughtfully designed educational resources. Each topic is addressed with multiple learning activities to appeal to various learning styles, and include writing activities, graphic organizers, and role plays. The online interactive games are educational and enjoyable. The video segments depict historical events in a way that is accessible and interesting.

What I appreciate most about t...(more)

My children have spent hours on the website. They absolutely love it, and they are learning in the process. We are looking forward to the virtual field trips. Thank you so much for having this resource available for us.

This program makes history come to life. My 12 year old daughter absolutely loves using the hands on tools and watching the realistic reenactments. We have been to Colonial Williamsburg, nothing takes the place of actually walking the grounds, but if you can not take that trip, this program is the next best thing. You are able to get up close and personal with the videos. (A front row seat!!!)

We used this program last year and plan to this year as well. They are offering DIFFERENT videos from last year!

We watched "A More Perfect Union." Although we had covered the U.S. Constitution, in brief, on Constitution Day, my kids still thought we were governed by the Articles of Confederation. The Colonial Williamsburg portrayal of the discourse surrounding the formation of our current constitution cemented the concept that our current constitution is a change from where the colonies started. In addition, it allowed my kids to realize that conversations can be complex about the "how's" even when you agree on the what you want to achieve and attain. ...(more)

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!!
