Career Collage

Suggested Grades



Students will gather pictures from magazines that represent a variety of careers that they are interested in. The goal of this activity is to expose students to the numerous careers that exist in this world.


  • magazines
  • glue
  • scissors
  • large pieces of paper
  • chart paper
  • marker


  • Ask students to flip through the magazines and cut out pictures that show different people’s jobs (careers), then glue these onto a large piece of paper.
  • Display each student’s collage one by one, and as a class come up with a list of all the jobs that were represented.
  • Discuss what each student would like to be when they grow up.
  • Are there any more jobs that can be added to the list?
