Fifth graders are introduced to the important topic of renewable, and non-renewable, resources. They are expected to be able to correctly categorize different types of resources as renewable or non-renewable. Another emphasis of this lesson is to teach the importance of conserving our non-renewable resources. An important lesson in this era of over-consumption.
Fifth graders identify renewable vs. non-renewable resources and comprehend why conservation of resources is important. They are asked what they think the words natural and resource mean. Pupils then put the words together to define the term natural resource. Students brainstorm examples of natural resources. They define the terms renewable resources and nonrenewable resources and give examples of each.
Renewable resources are the star of this informative video on energy sources. The instructor does a great job explaining exactly what renewable resources are, going into detail about each. He also encourages the conservation of non-renewable resources. A valuable video!
Part two of a two-part series on renewable resources being utilized in New York is here for your viewing. This part focuses on the photovoltaic solar power systems that are popping up all across the state. The host also visits the home of a family that installed a photovoltaic system on their roof. He interviews them to see how happy they are with their investment. Excellent!
Part one of a two-part series on renewable resources being utilized in New York is here for you. This first part focuses on the wind power farms that are popping up all across the state. There are many more than you might imagine. The host does an excellent job of explaining how these wind farms generate electricity.
Students participate in a simulation of the equal and unequal distribution of the earth's renewable resources. They discuss renewable resources and how food resources can increase and decrease, participate in the simulation, and analyze the impact of increasing population on the resources.
Learners evaluate data related to population growth, along with problems and solutons: resources availability. They are able to conclue that some ecosystem resources are finite. Students are shown "Resources" powerpoint, learners come up with defintions of vocabulary words based on pictures; discuss where in the world the most energy is used and compare energy consumption to population.
Learners study the value of renewable resources, composting and conservation. They watch computer based video before completing a composting activity and making recycled paper.
Here's a fine lesson on renewable and non-renewable sources of energy for your 5th graders. In it, learners list a number of natural resources on the board, then try to sort the resources into appropriate categories. This helps them to define and understand renewable vs, non-renewable resources. The discussion concludes with ways that the non-renewable resources can be conserved by everyone in the class.
Young scholars 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.
Twelfth graders explore the difference between natural and man-made environments.  In this renewable resources lesson students evaluate the economic importance of resources. 
Investigate the prospect of wind as a renewable resource. Second and third graders make a pinwheel, answer critical thinking questions, and then attempt to use wind power to wind string. I would be more apt to use this lesson in a 1st or 2nd grade class than for 3rd graders.
Students examine renewable energy sources such as solar, water, and wind. They experiment to determine how renewable energy is transformed into electricity. They investigate the role of engineers who work in the field of renewable energy.
Students discuss and view examples of the illuminated manuscripts that were created during medieval times and into the Renaissance. In small groups, they research the resources that were used to create the manuscripts and classify them as renewable or non-renewable. this lesson includes modifications for many grade levels.
Students investigate the reasons for and processes of Recycling and Composting. In this environmental activity, students learn to identify renewable and nonrenewable resources and then practice recycling by making recycled paper and composting organic materials. 
Although this presentation was put together as a student teacher project, there is a segment of slides within it that can be used to introduce your young scientists to renewable energy sources. It compares nonrenewable resources to renewable resources, and then touches upon solar, wind, hydropower, and geothermal energy. The segment concludes by assigning viewers a research and PowerPoint activity. It even provides a grading rubric.
Young scholars identify renewable and nonrenewable resources. In this earth science lesson, students construct a T-chart of renewable and nonrenewable resources.
Eighth graders discuss the advantages and disadvantages of using renewable and non-renewable resources. In this earth science lesson plan, 8th graders crate a Venn diagram using the Inspiration software. They enhance their work and print them at the end of class.
Learners examine how ancient people used natural resources. In this renewable resource lesson, students will be put into 5 groups each focusing on a different past civilization.
