As of today, I’ve finished the career lessons for all of the 2nd and 3rd graders! I’m halfway through 4th and 5th grades too! We have been having so much fun exploring careers.
2nd graders got onto Paws in Jobland and answered questions to help define what careers would best suit their interests. They really liked getting on to the website and learning about all different careers.
3rd graders took a similar interest survey, and got assigned a “color” based upon their interests. They then used the website onetonline.org to learn more about the careers in their “color” group. There were some fun careers they identified.
4th and 5th graders went to pacareerzone.org and ranked their interest in different areas. Then they were able to see which careers fit best with their interests, and they were able to learn more about those careers. They REALLY liked reading the average annual wages for the jobs.
I’ve loved being able to read their interests and seeing which careers are the best fit. I am already looking forward to next February when we do the next round of career lessons to see if interests have changed too!
