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! 


Enjoy!
