The documents aggregated here comprise the kindergarten level unit of a series of career education curriculum materials originally designed for migrant students. The kindergarten level unit focuses on two occupational clusters identified by the United States Department of Labor (arts and humanities, and homemaking) and presents learning activities for the 11 jobs encompassed by the two clusters (teacher, artist, musician, dancer, actor, puppeteer, tailor, janitor, housekeeper, waiter, and day care worker). The combined teacher & students log sheets contain stories and information to be read to the student; worksheets on job and role information; and games, mazes, and tracing and pattern completion activities. The activity sheets are designed to help students practice skills of classification, matching, sequencing, and size and difference determination while they learn about the tools needed for each job. The teacher log contains information about each job, instructions for each activity, space for comments, and suggested answers for the activity pages. The pre- and post-tests utilize pictures to measure the extent to which students understand the tools needed and work performed in the 11 jobs. The illustrated activity folders contain activities developed to increase students' self-awareness, job and role information, and decision making/goal attaining skills. (SB)
