5th- Careers! We pretended we were going on a trip out of the country. Students had 5 minutes to write down everything they were going to pack or do to prepare for the trip-if they didn't write it they didn't take it or do it! Very few of my friends remembered their passport, transportation, AND lodging! Lots of trips with sad endings (or starts!). We used the activity to discuss the importance of an educational plan. How to plan for a future career by choosing the right classes, participating in volunteer opportunities, and talking to people who have jobs we might want. Only ONE more counselor class before Middle School! AHHH! :(
4th- Only one class met this week because of MAP testing. We worked on Career Path stations, which I'll explain in more detail once the other classes have done them, too.
