Our Natural Resources lesson plan discusses the natural resources of the Earth and how they used by humans. The students will need to distinguish between renewable and non-renewable, as well as their subcategories. The discussion during the lesson could also lead to protecting the Earth’s resources, wasting resources, and other environmental issues facing the planet and world leaders. During this lesson, students are asked to fill in the blanks in a given story with words from a list of lesson vocabulary. Students are also asked to identify whether various things are renewable or non-renewable, organic or inorganic, and metallic or non-metallic in order to demonstrate their understanding.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define and identify the Earth’s natural resources, including both renewable and nonrenewable, as well as give examples for each.
