The middle grades (5 – 7) are prime time for exploring careers. These problem-solving Career Challenges were originally shared pre-COVID. They offer opportunities for students to explore careers within the context of solving real world problems. Each activity includes a brief career profile plus two challenges:

  • an online research chase to find out  facts about the featured career
  • a story-based problem-solving sceneario that gives students a sense of the people, products, and processes associated with the featured career
