The curriculum guide is designed to integrate elementary school curriculum with career education concepts. 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 the sixth grade, students are expected to make a tentative career choice through exposure at every grade level to nine different occupations. In the fourth grade, the students examine the following occupations: veterinarian, weatherman, dentist, game warden, meatcutter, petroleum industry worker, service station attendant, nurse, and radio announcer. Fifth graders study careers in geology, transportation, communications, and armed forces, and recreation, as well as specific occupations (salesman, chef, and mechanic). In the sixth grade, the nine occupations studied are: health services, computer science, photography, law enforcement, architecture, city government, space travel, oceanography, and conservation. Each occupational area contains a list of suggested activities, suggested resource people and fieldtrips, and audio-visual materials. (JB)
