The documents aggregated here comprise the fifth grade unit of a career education curriculum designed for migrant students. Focusing on 11 occupations in manufacturing, marketing, and distribution, the combined teacher and student logs contain lessons and activities about the tools and tasks of workers in the 11 occupations: union representative, welder, machinist, assembly worker, textile designer, chemist, buyer, sales representative, accountant, commercial artist, and trucker. The logs contain all the student activities with instructions for their use, answers to the puzzles and activities, an orientation to the unit, vocabulary lists for each occupation, suggestions for further activities, and space for notes. The activities and puzzles are intended to provide occupational information while they reinforce the skills of matching, fact finding, determining the main idea, outlining, spelling, and logical validity. The pre- and post-tests utilize pictures to measure the extent to which students understand the tools needed and the 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. (NQA)
