Students will describe how their interests relate to careers.
Introduce the You Dont Say career game. Divide your students into groups of six (or
more). Within each group, divide the students into two teams. Then distribute one copy of
the Game Rules to each team and review them together. You might want to ask one
group to play a sample round as a demonstration. (5-10 minutes)

Play You Dont Say. Distribute the Game Cards to each group and let the fun begin!
See how students do at guessing the various careers. If there are careers they have
difficulty guessing or have never heard of before you might want to start a list for
future career exploration. Remind students how they can learn more about careers. For
instance, they can search for career information at Career Ship at: (15-20 minutes)

Discuss career interests. Ask students if they learned anything new about a career while
playing the game. What did they learn? How can they learn more? Remind them that they
can check the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics What Do You Like web site at for more information. (5-10 minutes)
