Students took assessment on http://public.careercruising.com/us/en (Career Cruising website) and it matched them with careers that fit their interests. They then researched career of their choice to determine the average annual salary. If your district doesn't have access to Career Cruising website then students may not be able to sign on. However, there are similar websites online if you do a google search. I prefer Career Cruising.
Afterwards, I have students complete paystub by answering the questions on worksheet provided. I also have them draw a picture of what their future family would look like and how they see themselves in future career. I do this at the end of school year. They like it because they learn about themselves and peers and how much money is taken from their paycheck such as social security, medicare, and income tax. (I approximated all the percentages).
