Career Awareness

Elementary school is a crucial time for developing career awareness. Helping students become aware of the career possibilities that await them is a great way to keep them interested in their education and excited about their futures. The goals, at this level, are to expose students to a variety of careers and help them start thinking about their interests.

Our Elementary Career Awareness System includes hands-on kits that are aligned to eleven career pathways and introduce over 55 careers. They are designed to deliver developmentally appropriate content with highly interactive, hands-on activities.

Activities include using a teddy bear as a patient to learn about health care or learning to make change with play money in order to introduce new careers in the medical field, banking and business. Students also learn basic English, math and science skills with a fun, applied approach in our career awareness series.

What’s in a Kit?

  • Instructor’s Notes: Assist in easy planning
  • Real Tools & Materials: Provide meaningful, relevant activities
  • Student Instructions: Fun, engaging step-by-step activities
  • Assessments with Audio: To assist with progress monitoring
  • Student Activity Worksheets: Further support academics
  • Electronic Files: Word, PDF & PowerPoints: For technology compatibility
  • Academic Integration: Basic English, math and science
I feel that they can reach all of our students regardless of their diverse backgrounds. In a simple format, they provide a lot of career information that I feel many students are not exposed to.
