Units in the curriculum guide are presented in two sections, K-3 and 4-6, and emphasize hands-on activities, role-playing, resource persons, field trips, and classroom career corners. Organized on the career cluster concept, the K-3 units cover self-concept, home and family, familiar community occupations, zoo animals, travel, school, and the hospital. Transportation, communications, health, and merchandising and distribution are covered in the fourth through sixth grade section. Most units include introductory or motivational material; content or plans for instruction in language arts, science and math, art, and other areas; books and resources in many media; songs and rhythms, and suggestions for student evaluation. Appendixes contain an example of a classroom career corner and 21 pages of additional activities for kindergarten through sixth grade. (MDW)
