Teachers and parents – are you looking for a way to engage young learners in fun career awareness and career exploration activities? We’ve got you covered with home learning materials you can put to immediate use with K-5 students. And, since distance learning has become the norm, we made sure they’re easy to implement outside the classroom.
Oklahoma CareerTech, sponsor of The OK Career Guide, powered by Kuder® (www.OKCareerGuide.org) created the resources below, which are organized by grade level. Adapt any of these ideas to better meet the needs of your students.
In this activity, students identify and count money. They’ll connect coins and bills with place values by setting up a grocery store with a toy register (or a shoebox if one isn’t handy), play money, and grocery items.
This activity brings students an awareness of how work relates to the needs and functions of society.
This activity helps students understand how to make decisions. Students will also learn how failing can be a learning opportunity.
