Amazon Career Tours features additional resources to ensure lasting learning, including a key student learning guide that aids educators in navigating the career tours and explains key terms and ideas, and a student note catcher that captures the essential learnings of each activity. Accompanying educator guides feature materials such as background information, activities, and check-ins to make it simple for educators to incorporate the content into any lesson plan or learning environment.
