Electronic Field Trips
Programs for Elementary and Middle Schools

2012-13 EFTsColonial Williamsburg's Electronic Field Trips series of seven different and varied historical programs are targeted to the social studies curriculums of students in grades 4-8. These exciting, inspiring stories about America's history, from the colonial era to the present day, are available online 24/7 during the school year.

The stories are told through engaging video segments, student-friendly gaming technology, and classroom interactives. Schools that subscribe to each program are provided with a teacher guide containing historical background information, glossary, time line, and classroom lesson plans that are designed by teachers, for teachers. Students receive a password to web activities and a message board where they can discuss their opinions or post questions year-round. They also have an amazing opportunity to participate in the live field trip event, connecting with historical characters and historians via phone, video, email, or online voting.
