The guide to career education is designed to supplement an existing curriculum at the third and fourth grade level; it suggests and outlines a developmental program of learning activities and resource materials which may be integrated with the teaching of academic subject areas. The suggested activities and materials are designed to (1) promote the student's understanding of himself and others, (2) provide occupational information, (3) explore the world of work, and (4) prepare the student for personal decision-making. The program is intended to help the student recognize that educational experiences are a means of achieving life goals. The activities in Volume 1 pertain to social studies, and include a Missouri unit with student worksheets and a collection of student-developed, career-related games and puzzles. The subject areas used to group the activities in Volume 2 are fine arts, language arts, math, and science. In addition to the suggested resource materials which are listed in conjunction with the learning activities, both volumes contain identical resource guides to audiovisual materials, sources of free career information, and a list of field trip sites in Missouri.
