Classroom Share: SMS FaCS Career Exploration Fun

Students in Ms. Scott’s and Mrs. Malone’s 8th grade Family and Consumer Sciences classes at Selden MS wrapped up their Career Exploration unit by participating in a fun filled “Guess My Occupation” game. After taking personal inventory surveys, matching interests to careers, researching a career of interest, practicing filling out job applications, and role playing interviews, students either “dressed for success” or “dressed in uniform” of their researched career. They then provided the class with clues about the occupations as part of a fun way to become familiar with multiple career options such as: chemists, mental health counselors, midwives, creative writers, security guards, lawyers, mathematicians, pool technicians, drama teachers, financial analysts, architects and more.
