Careers: Living and Working with Animals
Students explore making fulfilling career choices by focusing on careers with animals as examples. They research various careers with animals and share their findings.
This lesson helps learners explore career decision-making based on the importance of job satisfaction, and to consider career options that help them make choices to best use their time and talents. Learners will identify why people make career decisions and how “being of service,” especially related to animal welfare, might lead to job satisfaction.
In this lesson the learners will explore career options, especially those careers associated with animal welfare. The learners will combine what they have come to understand about job satisfaction and use this information to guide their research and creation of a presentation about careers with animals in preparation for hosting a “Careers with Animals” Expo.
The learners will practice their audio/visual career research presentation in front of their peers, and use peer feedback to make adjustments and finalize their presentations. They will plan, implement and reflect on a service project to inform others about careers with animals by hosting an informational Careers with Animals Expo.
