Description:

You are invited to Play, Watch, Do, and Explore! As the newest member of the Kuder Career Planning System, Kuder Galaxy is a fun and educational career awareness experience for all elementary students. Galaxy provides students, Pre-K through 5th grade, with developmentally-appropriate activities while parents and teachers can track student progress through secure, online dashboards. Galaxy helps students build self-understanding and early exploration of careers through games (Play), videos (Watch), downloads (Do), and trips (Explore). These four action-based categories are the cornerstones of the experience and are easily integrated into any classroom setting.Galaxy's regularly updated content is aligned to career clusters, core school subjects, and National Career Development Association and American School Counselor Association goals and guidelines. Galaxy also supports differentiation through simple, self-guided exploration and facilitates the development of fundamental reading, listening, speaking, and writing skills - all of which play a vital role in a student's success.
