Have You Been to Jobland?

Sorry for the changes! I felt like my old template was too busy and hard to read!  I hope you enjoy the new and improved (and simple) look of my page!

This month in 2nd grade, we're taking a trip to Jobland!  In K-2 career lessons, the focus is on getting familiar with jobs and finding out what jobs might match our interests.  2nd graders get to go on the laptops and visit Paws in Jobland.  Paws is a friendly cartoon dog that talks to kids about jobs.  The kids get to explore various careers in Jobland, and even get to take a "jobfinder" survey.  It asks questions about their interests, such as "do you like math?"  Once students have finished with the survey, certain areas of Jobland are hightlighted so they can look at those careers that best match with their results. 

You can find visit Jobland on or click the Paws in Jobland link below.  Some things you might discuss after visiting the site are:
  1. What new jobs did you learn about?
  2. What do you think you might want to be when you grow up?
  3. Do you have to go to college, trade school, or receive some other type of education for this job
  4. What is something you will share with your parents about this activity?
