Here are two lists of occupations or jobs: regular and advanced—over 100 occupations in all!

Playing drama games that involve occupations can help students develop characters with distinctive traits. Included with the list are seven ways to use the occupations with your group and two pages of occupations (over 100 in all!). One page has regular occupations and the second page has advanced occupations. They are set up on the pages so that they are easy to print, cut apart and put into a hat.

Examples of occupations

  • Garbage man
  • Reporter
  • Clown

Examples of advanced occupations

  • Game show host
  • Pickpocket
  • Deep sea diver
