Suggested Grade Level
Approximate Time Needed
Think about all the "hidden" jobs that fall into your career theme area. Pretend you are making a presentation to middle school students who might be interested in joining your academy. You want to impress these middle-schoolers by telling them about the many "behind the scenes", "hidden", or not-so--obvious academy-related careers and jobs they may never have thought of. Start making a list on the handout, "Lots More Theme Jobs".
Then form pairs and compare your lists. Add any good ideas you get from your partner onto your own list.
