Career Awareness in Elementary School
US Department of Education
Children may do better in school if they can see how education is connected to a successful future. This brochure is designed for parents to help their children: (1) Discover the variety of jobs available; (2) Connect classroom learning in school to real-world situations; (3) Begin viewing himself or herself in an occupation; and (4) Develop work-readiness skills such as working in teams, making decisions, solving problems and being a leader. By helping children learn about a broad range of careers from an early age and showing them how education is connected to those careers, parents can contribute greatly to future success. The brochure includes a list of career skills for elementary school children, and suggested career awareness activities for parents and children.
