Those of you who follow Carol Miller's blog, The Middle School Counselor, you may remember her post about The Career Game. While I may work with a different age group, I think this suits my elementary kiddos as well.
I've tried to expose my students to lessons about career exploration, but sometimes, it's hard to find engaging ways of introducing this topic to students who are so young.
I think that this game is a perfect option for elementary students, particularly 4th-6th graders.
I love the student workbooks! For my students, I think the best way to introduce them would be in a small group. This way, we could work on the pages session by session and spend time discussing each topic. However, I still think the books would lend themselves well to classroom lessons if you have the time to properly teach the material.
An extra feature is each student's web ticket, which allows them to convert their workbook scores into a list of jobs that match their interests. I still need to try that aspect with my students - we've been so engaged with the workbooks, we haven't moved on to the tickets...YET! :)
Check it out today! :)
