In this engaging worksheet activity, students will explore the dynamic landscape of the job market by sorting a list of fastest-growing jobs based on their growth rate. By arranging the jobs in descending order and responding to review questions, students will gain valuable insights into the intersection of career growth and earning potential. Students will read and understand the growth rate (from 2021-2031) and the median salary (as of 2021) of the 12 fastest-growing jobs in the USA and then will do a drag-and-drop sorting of the jobs.
The key objective is to help students develop an understanding of the dynamic nature of the job market. They will learn to identify and sort the fastest-growing jobs based on their median salaries, gaining insights into the relationship between job growth and earning potential.
