Dressing up offers a great opportunity for children to learn about professions and what different people do, or perhaps used to do in the case of pirates! But another way to expand children's knowledge of professions is to act out what people do. This is a simple and easy game to play in a group. Go through a series of professions and act out what they do. Here are some ideas:-
Act Like A...
Farmer: drive a tractor, scatter seeds, cut grass
Firefighter: drive a fire engine, put the siren on, put up a large ladder and climb it, point a hose at the fire
Doctor: mime putting on a stethoscope and listen to each other's chests, put on a plaster or bandage, administer medicine
Explorer: hunt aroudn with a torch, look amazed as you find spectacular things, cut your way through the jungle
Footballer: dribble a ball around, shoot at the goal, celebrate a goal
Have fun thinking of all sorts of things that people can do, and help your children learn all about various professions!
