Workforce Solutions 2-3 Lessons

Four lessons and an at-home connection examine 12 jobs. Beginning with an interactive map, scholars view and discuss each one within their small group. Groups focus on the products provided and on their scarcity. Finally, pupils look closely at the concept of scarcity and its impact on the community and create an advertisement to boost one career. At home, learners create a shoebox display and write a paragraph.
