An entrepreneurial and career-focused curriculum for grades 3-5.
LEAP (Learning Education Action Plan) equips youth with a foundational understanding of entrepreneurship and career opportunities. Students use this knowledge to create a customized plan with actionable strategies for future learning. The curriculum was developed with the Nebraska Department of Education and includes school standards.
Part A: Build a Foundation
The first section includes a concrete activity for each of the 12 common core foundational skills. Students discover and develop core skills to create a strong foundation for any interest area and career path.
Part B: The Umbrella Unit
The second section provides an introduction to entrepreneurship and serves as an umbrella to cover any possible field of career interest.
Part C: Dive in
Once they've developed core skills and learned entrepreneurial basics, students dive into the Career Fields. For each field, students explore career opportunities and the skills needed for success. Interrelated 4-H curricula is identified for each of the career fields.
Part D: Ready to LEAP
In this final section, students design their own, customized Learning Experiences Action Plan (L.E.A.P.). This plan will provide each program graduate with an actionable strategy for use as they leap into their education and career development.
