We do! In February, we spent the month discussing and exploring different careers. It was a really fun month as each grade level took on this objective. The lessons varied per grade level, but all students got to read and learn more about careers they didn’t know about. Part of my end-of-the-year data collection was to ask students in each grade level how many different careers they could list. Here is the data:
*38% of students could name SIX or more careers (some wanted to keep going, but I stopped them there!)
*15% of students could name five careers
*12% of students could name four careers
*15% of students could name three careers
*81% of students could name three or more careers!
We will definitely study careers next year too!
