Julia Cook's book What Shoes Will You Wear? is very popular with my third graders. As the hook I ask, "How is what you wear
and a job connected?" It is easy for students to point out shoes and uniforms are required for some occupations. The essential
questions for this lesson are: Who
am I? Where
am I headed? How
do I get there? During the lesson I review the 6 career paths. For more information about career paths missouricareereducation.org At the end of the lesson the students each draw a picture titled "What shoes will I wear in the future?" and label the occupation and match it to a career path.
