Careers from A to Z

In our Careers from A to Z lesson plan, students learn about various career paths and the basic skills needed for those careers. Students also learn what a career is and learn to identify various careers based on their descriptions.

Our Careers from A to Z lesson plan introduces students to some of the basic skills needed for most careers, as well as bringing awareness to several career opportunities. Students are at an age when they do not need to make a career choice, but it is helpful for students to be exposed to the numerous careers that will be available to them in the future. During this lesson, students are asked to research careers that they might be interested in and create information posters about them, which they then share with the class, sharpening their public speaking and presentation skills. Students are also asked to match given statements to their most likely career or job.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define career, identify and compare several careers, and summarize basic skills needed for most careers.

    This was a great segway into some career work we were going to work on. This gave my family the idea and starting point for developing a careers week.
