I made this slide show for my students on a career day. It is a list of 7 different jobs or sources of income that I did between 14 and 20 years old. Each activity or job is listed on it's own slide along with a quote about what I learned from each experience and 1-2 reflective questions for student to respond to on loose leaf alone or in small groups.
The goal of the presentation was to show how motivation and work can help people gain important knowledge and skills. It also shows them the importance of stepping stone jobs and work ethic.
This presentation would be a good lead in for a financial literacy unit regarding budgeting or any unit that will have students considering entering the workforce. The jobs and things span a wide variety of jobs that many youth will likely encounter as starter jobs.
The presentation wraps up with a YouTube Video about child millionaires and the ideas that got them there!
