These skills, eye-hand coordination, color concepts and picture comprehension, form the foundation for early learning success.

What is the importance of coloring in children?

Motor Skills: The act of coloring can improve motor skills in you children. The motions involved in coloring like holding the tools and scribbling with crayons can help in the development of the tiny muscles in their wrist, fingers and hands. Fine motor skills help your children to write and manipulate small objects.

How do coloring books help kids?

Coloring books make them focus. This skill will be used in school. Also, the coloring forces mentally to split figures or parts and to understand how the parts work together. Besides patience and develop grip.

In the next ten years, the construction industry will need additional workers to cover new work and a retiring workforce. And it’s not just careers in the skilled trades.
Administrative, design, and construction management careers are all on the rise.
There are many different construction jobs! Carpenter, Equipment Operator, Construction Laborer, Pipefitter, Plumber, Electrician, Project Engineer, Construction Estimator, Construction Inspector and Construction Superintendent and many more.

We hope you encourage your child to explore the many careers in construction and watch them build a successful future!

Let’s build your future today!

AGC is Proud to Partner with Local Educators

AGC considers “workforce development” as a broad umbrella that encompasses both those activities that encourage students in elementary, middle, high school or beyond to consider the potential of a career in construction and those that help prepare young people for their first jobs in the industry, either through craft training or a two- or four-year degree. Industry recruitment and retention are essential to the future of the construction industry. Just as important as finding craft workers, project managers and supervisors is ensuring that these essential workers are properly educated and trained. Efforts through AGC and its network of Chapters and industry partners are focused on the goal to attract, retain and train the future construction industry workforce.
