On the Job

Four lessons spotlight a variety of professions while boosting listening and observational skills and making inferences. Lesson one challenges pupils to group cards based on a commonality then justify the relationship they see. Lesson two requires learners to listen carefully to sounds and guess from which workplace they came. In lesson three, class members examine two pictures to identify their similarities and differences. Lesson four has small groups match career picture cards to descriptions then share their results with their peers.
