Clothesline Clues to Jobs People Do

Clothesline Clues to Jobs People Do - Can you identify the job a person does from the clothes he or she wears? Children are given two pages of clothes and equipment for each occupation from which they can try to identify the occupation. Turn the page and the person wearing the clothes and using the equipment is revealed.

Take time to ask your children what they think each item or tool is used for on the job. Ask them what occupation their father and mother perform, what they wear to work, and what tools they use to perform their jobs.
