Career Case game
The Career Case game shows students in Grades 9-12 the diversity, variety and importance of careers in agriculture. It helps students understand how their skills and interests can fit into food and agriculture careers.
Career Case is a game where students work together to solve problems and learn about different careers in agriculture. It’s suggested for students in Grades 9-12.
In the game, students are faced with a case (a situation or challenge). They work in groups to pick 4 or 5 careers that can solve the case. There are 30 different careers to choose from.
Career Case takes 60-90 minutes with a teacher or facilitator, but there’s also a speed version that takes 15-20 minutes.
The game promotes the development of important skills and competencies like decision-making, leadership, listening, collaboration, teamwork, critical thinking, communicating, presenting, problem finding and solving, flexibility, creativity and negotiation. It connects to curriculum topics including career exploration, science, life transitions, health, science and social studies.
This program is also available in French.
Grade 9-12 teachers and school staff can apply to get a copy of the game. Private schools will be accepted if resources are available.
