It is very important for students to start thinking about their futures at younger ages. Students need to know what options are available to them and what each of those options entail. This unit/project allows students to explore a career, what it takes to get there, colleges, etc. The cornerstone of this unit is a lapbook that students will complete over the course of the unit. The lapbook includes a 'Road Map to my Future" which lists strengths, interests, goals and more. The side columns of the lapbook allow students to diver deeper into one career, SMART goals and their personality type.
I do this unit with fourth grade and from beginning to end we go over personality types (4 colors of personality based after the Keirsey temperament sorter), connect our personality colors to potential careers, pick one career to research further, discuss college and explore the Monster's University website, and learn about and write SMART goals.

*A 5 question pre/post test
*A pdf of the simplified personality test (to determine personality color)
*A powerpoint describing the 4 personality colors and matching them to the 4 letter personalilty codes determine by the personality test
*A powerpoint that discusses choosing careers and matches the colors of personalities to possible career options
