Using fun online resources students will explore careers in science, technology, engineering, and math, and make connections to Thanksgiving – from animal scientist (researching new turkey nutritional supplements?) to zoonotic epidemiologist (tracking down avian influenza?)! Students will then analyze information about the creation of a 3 course meal gum (Willy Wonka style!), and devise their own ‘Thanksgiving of the Future’ story requiring them to explore careers on their own, devise meaning, and communicate in a fun & creative way. Purchase includes:
1. 21 question webquest in PDF, TpT digital activity, and googledoc formats
2. comprehensive answer key
3. access to premium online STEM career exploration resources (each with virtual job shadow, downloadable info sheet in English and Spanish), and fun career focused activity
Will take students at least 90 minutes to complete independently. A must for Thanksgiving week fun!
