The Roadmap of My Life - Module 1

This activity will help you learn why career exploration is important and fun by planning a personal "career roadmap".

•  Describe why career exploration is important and fun.
•  Describe the scope of career options.
•  Distinguish between a job and a career.

Read all instructions before you begin the activity.  Follow carefully the instructions within the activity.


1.    There are two ways to approach your future.  You can randomly go through life or you can have a plan to follow as you proceed through your life.  Taking a risk to explore is the key to having fun.

2.    Each student will create a roadmap that contains information about where you are now and where you want to be in the future.  You will  need to use pictures and words.  Be creative and truly demonstrate who you are!
