Apps for Teaching Careers to Kids

It's been a while since I've updated my blog. I really don't have a good excuse other than life! Three kids keep me hopping. I head back to work tomorrow so I'm getting back in the groove.

My mom recently downloaded a Dr. Panda app for my 3 year old daughter and she loved it! So, I started researching them and found that there is a series of these apps that are all careers related.

Dr. Panda Apps

There is Art Class with Dr. Panda, Dr. Panda's Handyman, Dr. Panda's Beauty Salon, Dr. Panda's Supermarket, Dr. Panda's Veggie garden, Dr. Panda's Daycare, Dr. Panda's Restaurant, Dr. Panda's Hospital, and Dr. Panda's garage.

Another set of career type apps I have found are the Tocca Apps. Here's the link to those.

Here are a few others:
 Playtime Adventures: Careers
Barbie I Can Be app
Dress Up: Professions
Monkey Preschool When I Grow Up
See Rainbow Careers!

I'm sure there are many others. Does anyone else have an app to teach careers that they recommend? How would you utilize these apps in your classroom counseling lessons?
