Career choice roller coaster
This blog post is geared to younger kids in 1st – 5th grade. It’s a great starting for when children begin talking about what they want to be when they grow up! After reviewing the comic, some great questions to ask kids include:
- What is a job that you would like to have someday?
- How can you tell if a job is a good match for you?
Choosing our careers is a mix of income, skill and passion. Each of these areas are great talking points with children. You can take time to explain what each means and help them discover skills they may not know they have!
