Abstract

Everybody Works in many ways — indoors, outdoors, at home, at an office, by traveling from place to place, to earn income, or as a hobby. This book is a photographic essay looking at the many ways people work and sometimes use animals in their work. The learning cycle lesson helps young children construct a deeper understanding of work as varied and an important part of each person’s life.
