Activity Overview / Details

Welcome students into class and have them seated before asking the following questions:

1) How many of us are are fans of television?

2) Any reality or documentary show fans in the room?

3) What are some of your favorite T.V. Shows?

Have students focus their attention to the projector, and let them know that they are going to see some clips from their most favorite T.V. Shows

Show television clips include: "The Office", "Dirty Jobs", "Ice Road Truckers", "Axe Men", "Deadliest Catch", "Parks and Recreation"

Once the clips have finished, have students think about the careers that were showcased during those clips, and have them select one career and move to that poster that is posted around the classroom. After the students have found their poster, have them brainstorm and record why they all selected that career. Give the students 60 seconds to brainstorm and capture their group responses on their poster. At the conclusion of the 60 seconds have each group share why they selected the careers that they did, and celebrate each group once they have shared.

As students are moving back to their seats, ask them to think to themselves about why they believe it is important to think about their future careers. Once all of the students are seated, explain to them that today they will take a look into the qualities that we want in our careers and what Agriculture careers meet the qualities we are going to select.
