Career Lessons with Pretend Professionals

Some of the best career lessons for grades K and 1 have been with the pretend professionals figurines. I have seen school counselors sit in circle and pass the figuines around while the children discuss them. 

I have seen SCs give clues or ask questions about the careers..."Do they work inside or out? During the day or during the night? What is that he is holding? I have seen the figurines accompany a story on careers, a worksheet, drawing assignments of what the children wish to be when they grow-up. 

Now the figurines show people with disabilties. What a great way to explain and show diversity and talk about how people with disabilties still can work. The amount of things you can do with the pretend professionals are endless!
