The curriculum guide is designed to integrate elementary school curriculum with career education concepts in the primary grades. The major objectives are to acquaint the students with careers in order to develop a positive awareness of and attitude toward work, to appreciate the contributions that they can make, and to develop basic skills for entry into the work world. (By sixth grade, students are expected to make a tentative career choice through exposure at every grade level to nine different occupations.) For the first grade, the students examine the optometrist, zoo-keeper, carpenter, nurse, doctor, farmer, dentist, policeman, and general career areas. The students study, on the second grade level, skilled and unskilled workers, dairy occupations, fire fighters, librarians, veterinarians, bank clerks and tellers, post office occupations, telephone operators, nurses, and dietitians. For third graders, the nine occupations are those of: wool growers, transportation occupations, newspaper reporters, retail trades, teachers, barbers and cosmetologists, foresters, building trades, and food production. Each occupational area contains a list of suggested activities, resources, suggested resource people and field trips, and audiovisual materials. No kindergarten materials are included in the document. (JB)
