The report describes a K-6 career awareness project designed to: describe the major goals of an elementary career education program; assimilate the career education concepts into the curriculum; provide inservice training for administrators, teachers, and staff; and identify community resources of use in career education programs.

The remainder of the document consists of three appendixes: integrated career awareness activities (246 pages), which for each of the seven grade levels provides major projects, subject matter focus, career development concepts, teacher goals, student performance objectives, a wide range of suggested activities for various occupational clusters, and suggested human and material resources; suggested musical activities to correspond with occupational clusters (5 pages); and an annotated bibliography (15 pages), which lists books, audiovisual materials, kits, prints, puzzles, and games suitable for use in K-6 career awareness projects.
