Students contribute their own personal gasoline consumption data with other schools. They share thoughts and opinions on fossil fuels, its effects and what they can do in an effort to conserve natural resources.
Students examine the history of the National parks. In groups, they discuss the concepts of conservation and preservation. They discuss the use of natural resources and how some are renewable and non-renewable. To end the lesson, they research the role of Gifford Pinchot and the Hetch Hetchy controversy and discuss with the class.
Students are introduced to the need to save natural resources. Through inquiry, hands-on activities, and problem solving, students increase their understanding of solid waste materials and the need to reduce, recycle, and reuse.
Students identify the four basic natural resources. They distinguish bettween renewable and non-renewable resources. Pupils recognize that all natural resources are needed by living plants and animals. Students list consequences for continued use of non-renewable resources. They conduct an experiment in producing a biodegradable plastic from corn.
Eleventh graders research information about Canada in The Canadian Atlas, examine human impact upon landscape of Canada, and discuss ways Canadians can preserve their land and standard of living by using country's natural resources more efficiently.
Students role-play coyotes looking for natural resources. In this natural resources lesson, students examine the relationship between animal life and the environment. Students play a game that demonstrates how natural resources affect animal populations.
The students take a harbor cruise, photograph, and draw shore line features attending to evidence of human impact/consequences, and its cost on marine/land animal habitats vegetation, weather patterns, signs of erosion, and the water quality of the city's greatest natural resource the Boston Harbor and its associated rivers.
Students make recycled paper out of scrap paper, water, and leaves. In this natural resources lesson plan, students learn about conservation of the forest and how we can use recycled paper to fuel our paper supply.
Energy analysts assess the environmental cost of fossil fuels and compare it to various alternative energy sources. They role play a community scenario where they develop a plan to provide energy for a certain region. They present an argument convincing the Town Hall that their method is the most effective.
In small groups, energy engineers research and make a topographic map of a marine natural resource. They report to the rest of the class pros and cons of extracting their assigned resource. The two activities may take up to four class periods for middle schoolers to complete. Very attractive professional-quality handouts are provided for class members.
Students identify which parts of the earth are solids, liquids or gases. They discover the need to conserve natural resources. They examine different products and what materials are used to make them.
Students make a poster about the condition of different resources in their place. In this environmental science lesson, students discuss how to conserve natural resources. They explain how important it is to maintain balance in the ecosystem.
Eighth graders discuss the role of trees as one of the most important natural resources. In groups, they examine how the forests nearby helped to shape their urban city. Using the internet, they research the use of the forest in early American History and discover ways to conserve. To end the lesson, they revisit the value of trees and what careers are possible.
Students investigate how to reduce, recycle, and reuse items in order to conserve natural resources. They complete a trash graphing activity after discussing different types of trash. Finally, the examine ways to buy recycled products to extend their conservation efforts.
Learners identify the Earth's natural resources. In this Earth science instructional activity, students read the book The Great Kapok Tree and discuss types of natural resources. Learners use categories such as wood, paper, and trees and list items that come from each natural resource.
Students discuss environmental preservation and sustainability and their role in consumption and preservation. After a brief demonstration of how limited our resources are, students determine which natural resources they use most frequently and how they can help sustain those resources.
Pupils identify and explain human effects on the environment. They explore the terms biodiversity, natural resources, ozone and global warming. After exploring all the terms , they connect technology to them and how it effects the environment as well.
Students apply what they have learned about throwaway products "and the valuable natural resources from which they're derived" by thinking about where garbage goes after they throw it out. They also examine their own ideas and habits about recycling and discover what a serious effect litter and mass waste disposal have on the environment.
Fifth graders investigate the concept of natural resources. They participate in a simulation project to see possible uses. They use the internet to study how Hacienda Verde is used as a model for others for sustainable coffee crops.
Students are able to analyze practices that affect the use, availabiltiy, and management of natural resources. They are able to show that the forces of friction retards motion. Students investigate electricity and magnetism as universal forces and technological applications.
