Exploring Jobs and Careers
On Friday, I visited the Omega boys' Career Fair where I met with future doctors, soccer players, race car drivers, bus drivers--even a spy!
The boys shared their original career study books, which contained colorful illustrations and facts about the careers they selected. With great animation, they displayed their knowledge and were eager to answer questions posed by faculty and parent visitors.
During the fall, the class studied various careers and their roles in the
community. They welcomed parent visitors to their classroom to talk about their careers; and went on several field trips, including one to the Queens County Farm Museum where they learned about the farmer's role in our community.
The Exploring Jobs and Careers study engages our young students in the type of active, hands-on learning that boys love and which deepens understanding.
