A broad educational background is necessary to meet ever changing occupational fields, and Career Education is an approach incorporating career information within the regular school curriculum. For the elementary level, career awareness is the main thrust in this program to integrate students and community. The introduction contains the format for grade three, performance objectives and criterion test rationale, and major objectives. The teacher aids section provides suggestions for activities, and the guidance component includes six activities directed towards self-understanding and behavior. The career units cover eight occupational clusters: 10 introductory activities; 28 activities in natural resources (oceanographer, marine biologist, icthyologist, commercial fisherman); 32 activities in transportation (astronaut, railway engineer, ship builder, ship captain); 25 activities in food service (cook, chef, food service worker, home economist, ice cream maker); 29 activities in farming (poultry farmer, entomologist, heavy equipment operator, irrigation specialist); 30 activities in health (dentist, hospital staff, veterinarian, zoo caretaker); 28 activities in business (retail foodstore worker, hotel/motel manager, salespeople, shoe repairman); 30 activities in recreation and handicrafts (baseball player, jeweler, pottery maker, ski area manager); and four activities for a brick manufacturer. Each occupations unit is introduced by major objectives, concepts, and suggested resources. (JB)
