Catch a Career Thumball™ provides representative examples covering the 16 career clusters developed by the US Department of Education.
 
Thumball is a soft stuffed ball to throw, roll, or pass in a circle or randomly. Catch it! Look under your thumb. Respond to the prompt. Kids absolutely love this interactive tool that will get them talking and sharing.
 
When your thumb lands on a green hexagon, choose one of the following ways to respond:
  • Act out the career and see if others can guess. 
  • Describe two special skills needed in this career.
  • Name one thing that could be fun or rewarding in this career.
  • Name one thing that could be frustrating or scary in this career.
