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!

Nice and clear Pictures but the name of the community helpers is too complex for a small child to comprehend.

My son with Autism, is all about costumes, and different jobs right now. This set of cards is so awesome. Not only does it help him understand a job and what it entails, but it helps me better explain things to him. I highly recommend this for anyone who has a child or adult that loves exploring about different professions.

I love that the people in the photo where both genders. No stereotyping.

It mentions the prerequisite requirements needed to attain that job. It also mentions the skill set needed and required in that job.

THe pictures and quality of the paper is nice and clear.

Perfect for young kids learning about community helpers! I used these in my Pre-K classroom to introduce a new community helper and my students LOVE these cards. They love mixing the cards up and matching the community helper with their tools.

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.)
