Product Description
Do you have students interested in careers?

Do you want to introduce careers to your students but aren't sure how?

Look no further!!!! This packet has everything you need :)

From a young age we tell kids they can be anything they want to be; that doesn’t do any good if we don’t help them discover what it is they want to be. It is very encouraging, but doesn't help them discover what they truly want to do with their lives. If kids aren’t exposed to various careers and informed of the educational requirements, they are less likely to make a career choice that suits their unique skill set. In this ever-changing and competitive world, students must plan well and work hard in order for their future dreams to come true. Planning starts with narrowing down options, which is what the KID'S CAREER CHOICES PACKET is designed to do!!!!!!

Using the included resources, you can explain to your elementary school students the job descriptions, educational requirements, and qualities needed to excel in 42 popular and realistic careers, while challenging students to think about which type of career may be the right fit for them.

Included in this packet:

✔Top 12 Careers of 2015 Posters (could be used as career of the month activity)
✔Top 12 Careers of 2016 Posters (found at very end of PDF file)
✔Top 12 Careers of 2017 Posters (separate PDF file in ZIP folder download)
Top 12 Careers of 2018 Posters (separate PDF file in ZIP folder download)

✔10 Essential Skills of a Successful Employee Poster

✔42 Career Posters (30 original, 12 include the Top 12 Careers of 2015 without number rankings)

✔42 Character Trait Cards (outlines the character traits and qualities necessary to succeed at each career)

✔Career Sorting Interactive Game (Sort careers into three piles: this is a good career for me, this may be a good career for me, this is not a good career for me)

✔Career Decision Worksheets (help students get their ideas of of their head and onto paper)

✔Occupational Outlook Handbook Worksheet (online search activity)


In this crazy world of endless options, thinking of the future can be overwhelming for a child. By playing the game, along with utilizing the posters and worksheet, from a young age we can get students thinking about what kinds of careers are available, what kinds of careers they may enjoy, and make them aware of the potential educational challenges of qualifying for the career. After these lessons, students can start to develop a clearer picture of what they want to be when they grow up and what steps are required to fulfill those dreams.

I hope your students LOVE these resources!!!!
