Jobs People Do
You must have heard of police men and women but what exactly do they do?

Jobs People Do

This quiz addresses part of the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2 in Geography. Specifically it looks at some of the different jobs people do and what duties they have. It is one of 50 quizzes to help you understand the world around you.

There are lots of different types of jobs and each has its own set of duties. This quiz is about just some of them. Not everyone has a job. Not everyone leaves their home to go to work. Some people work at home and look after the family. People need jobs to earn money. Can you say what all these people do?
