The activities guide is intended primarily to assist teachers in grades 4-7 in teaching career awareness concepts. Instructional activities correlate basic skill and career education objectives. The 29 units cover topics related to social studies (self-awareness, the community, the school, transportation, the environment, family roles, economic concepts, advertising, and politics) and science (nutrition, food production, and physiological functions). Material from the fields of art, language, math, and home economics is also incorporated into the units. The final chapter presents career awareness activities and materials for special students in multiple grade levels. Topics include family roles, the rewards of work, accepting emotions, manners, and salaries. Each unit contains the following: grade level designation, area of interest, subject area, title, developmental and behavioral objectives, concepts, activities, media and materials, and evaluative comments by teachers who have previously used the unit. Materials listed are filmstrips, possible class speakers and topics, demonstration paraphernalia, classroom equipment, children's books, study prints, and miscellaneous materials used in the activities. Supplementary materials include grooming pointers, information on selling oneself to an employer, personal data sheet, and a sample employment form. (Author/DB)
