Monster Career Activity

Today is Halloween, which is not my favorite holiday, but I wanted to embrace it anyways, and therefore I created this activity for my students in Career and Life Planning.

We are currently in our Career Unit for the class, and I wanted an activity that would be engaging, allow them to work together and be creative while also still relating to the unit we are studying. So, I created this Monster Career Project.

Students were split into pairs and were given the directions listed on the assignment sheet. They only had about an hour to complete the assignment because we had cookies as a treat for today, so they had to stay on task and work.

Here are a few pictures of our monsters and career advertisements that were created today. img_3072

9 Months That Made You

We just finished covering prenatal development and birth in my human growth and development class. As a part of this unit, we were able to watch the documentary series the 9 Months That Made You. It is available to purchase through PBS, and it is also on Netflix.

My students loved it. The stories were extremely interesting and also relevant to what we were discussing in class. It was really intriguing to see how different parts of pregnancy affect the life of a human and how genetics plays such a huge role in our development.

I created a guide for each episode and they are available on my TpT store: Episode Guides 

These would be great for when you need to be out of the classroom, or as a way to reinforce content that has already been taught. I would highly suggest using this documentary series as a resource in your classroom!
