Suggestions of approaches for the teacher

(Approach 1) Take old books and magazines and encourage the students to look for pictures of people in their workplace. Then, cut them and glue them on a sheet of paper. Ask the students to write the names of the professions below the pictures they glued.

(Approach 2) Interview a family member (This is suggested for kids older than seven years old):

  • Q1: What's your profession?

  • Q2: When did you start working in this profession?

  • Q3: Why did you choose this profession?

  • Q4: Do you like your job?

  • Q5: What is something that happened to you in your profession that is unforgettable? After they do that interview as homework, ask those who feel comfortable to share their experiences and ideas.

(Approach 3) Ask students to think of workplaces they would work at and clothes they would wear for each one of the professions they saw on the game. Turn this into a project. To do that,

ensure the students have enough materials to produce a poster. Some things you might need are: crayons, glue, glitter, scissors, paint, cardboard, sheets of paper, coloring pencils, pen, etc.

(Approach 4) Ask students to draw five professions that were not in the game.

(Approach 5) Ask students to research professions that used to exist in the past and professions that are not that common anymore.

(Approach 6) Ask students to list professions they think will exist in the future.

(Approach 7) Make a circle with the students and ask them:

  • What do you want to be when you grow up?

  • Why did you choose this profession?

  • Do you think this profession is dangerous?

(Approach 8) Make a play that includes some of the professions mentioned during the classes.

More about the content

Start the class by asking a few questions to the students, such as:

  • Who makes bread?

  • Who puts down a fire?

  • Who cooks?

  • Who makes hairstyles?

  • Who takes care of a farm?

After, ask if the students know any other professions. If they do, they say out loud.

You can also ask about the workplace:

  • Where does the doctor work?

  • Where does the chef work?

  • Where does the teacher work?

After asking these questions, tell them what the class topic will be. Then, take the students to play the game 'Professions';

After the game, you can do some of the activities suggested below.
