Career and technical education is a key component of the primary school experience. It is important to start career awareness and exploration early.
This purchase is for an elementary career lesson. It is made to correspond with How Santa got his Job by Stephen Krensky; there is a link to a youtube version of the story in the powerpoint (just click on the Santa picture on the first slide).
The rest of the powerpoint discusses matching strengths and interests to jobs. It covers what strengths or interests one might need to be Santa, an elf, or a reindeer. There are then corresponding applications for each job. Students can choose which job description best matches their skills and interests and fill out that application.
Students learn the importance of matching skills and interests to careers and practice with the concept of an application.
