These are great cards for get children involved in learning about the jobs of others in the community! There are 27 occupations cards and 27 tool cards included in this deck. What's great is that they use occupations that children come in contact with on a regular basis, like a doctor or librarian. I also love that they used real pictures of people and tools rather than cartoonish drawings.

So take the firefighter as an example, on one card there is a picture of a firefighter on the front and on the back, it gives several information facts about them. It asks, do you like challenging, dangerous, physical work; helping people; working as part of a team? The requirements of becoming a firefighter: including what college is needed, physical stamina and training. Then the duties that a firefighter performs: rescuing victims, inspecting buildings for fire hazards, teaching fire prevention and safety. It also lists where they work: firehouses, airports, scenes of accidents. Also jobs that are related: fire investigator, forest fire prevention, fire cost inspector. The tool card shows pictures of equipment that someone in that profession would use, so the firefighter has an ax, alarm, hose, and gives the description of those on the back.

The occupations included in this deck are: bank teller, chef, construction worker, delivery person, dentist, doctor, factory worker, farmer, firefighter, hair stylist, highway worker, judge, librarian, mail carrier, mechanic, military, nurse, paramedic, pilot, pharmacist, police officer, religious leaders, sales clerk, sanitation worker, school bus driver, teacher, and veterinarian.

These cards are great for any kid who wants to learn more about the people who work in their community!

The kids loved to see all the different jobs and acted out each job as well. They also loved the trivia questions as well.

I use these for speech/language therapy. Great for "who" questions and associations! Includes a nice variety of occupations and community helpers.

Nice photos, but some of them are a little confusing for kids for (ex. nurse, doctor, peremedic) all kind of similar. I am a speech therapist and use them with kids.They also have random cards with kinds of things they use but some are confusing to figure out even for me.... (again the peremedic, doctor, nurse, etc.)

These are simple and good quality cards. Great tool for elementary age children. They will start thinking-talking and asking questions. No problem with shipping.

My daughter enjoys these flash cards - some of them seem a bit dated but the quality is good and they are sturdy to stand up to her rough play.

I like these cards which have real pictures instead of drawings and each profession has two cards which have a LOT of information.
