Fossil Fuels: Understanding a Nonrenewable Resource
Incorporate fossil fuel issues into your curriculum with these lesson plan ideas.
Fourth graders classify resources as renewable or nonrenewable while playing a board game. They read King John story and discuss the story. Students explore renewable and nonrenewable resources. They play the resources game that show what resources are renewable and what are nonrenewable.
More Power to You
Students explore renewable and nonrenewable energy sources and develop a documentary that explores multiple energy sources and draws conclusions about their uses.
Renewable and Nonrenewable Resources
Learners identify renewable and nonrenewable resources. In this earth science lesson, students construct a T-chart of renewable and nonrenewable resources.
Make it Last
Fifth graders simulate extending the life of a nonrenewable resource. They conduct experiments that attempt to extend the life of a non-rechargeable battery. Pupils brainstorm a list of Earth's nonrenewable resources. Students write in their journals how one of the nonrenewable resources that they choose could be conserved.
Make it Last
Fifth graders simulate extending the life of a nonrenewable resource. In this nonrenewable resources lesson, 5th graders conduct experiments that attempt to extend the life of a non-rechargeable battery.
Searching for Tomorrow's Energy
Fifth graders investigate energy. In this biology lesson plan, 5th graders will learn about energy, fossil fuels, and renewable and nonrenewable resources. Students will be participating in three lab activities which are described in detail.
Everything Comes From Something
Young scholars and their families use a multitude of products every day. These products are manufactured in part or entirely from natural resources. Students explore about renewable and nonrenewable resources and trace resources' points of origin by constructing and analyzing a product map.
Students investigate how trash is classified and the options to deal with it. In this trash and recycling lesson, students perform an activity to classify trash into organic, renewable/ recyclable, now renewable/recyclable and nonrenewable/hard to recycle categories. They also perform an activity to create an edible model of a landfill.
Applied Science - Built Environment (2) Pre Lab
Second graders review how our society affects nature. For this energy lesson, 2nd graders discuss the different ways that energy is collected. They review renewable and nonrenewable energy sources.
Energy and the Environment
Fifth graders define terms associated with renewable and nonrenewable resources. They identify materials that are renewable and nonrewable. They categorize a list into the correct type of resource.
Students investigate nonrenewable and renewable resources using the Internet. In this environmental lesson, students research and create a PowerPoint presentation on energy resources.
TE Activity: The Great Divide
Students simulate the distribution of nonrenewable energy resources using cookies. They determine how the world's growing population effects the equitable distribution of these resources. They look at how engineers work to develop technologies that will ensure energy resources that will support the population.
Our Natural Resources
Learners discuss key terms used to describe ecosystems and how humans are altering natural resources. They listen to the book, Grandfather's Wisdom, and list the renewable and nonrenewable resources they have used or consumed in the past 24 hours.
Sixth Grade Canal Sciences Program Outline; Energy and Conservation
Sixth graders investigate the various features of the process of the scientific inquiry as it relates to the differences between renewable and nonrenewable resources. For this energy and conservation lesson, 6th graders explain the role of the sun as the major source of energy and its relationship to other forms of energy such as wind and water. Students then review the types of renewable and nonrenewable resources and how they relate to conservation.
Students explore alternative forms of energy, specifically solar energy, that can be used to conserve nonrenewable resources. They build solar ovens, make solar-cooked lunch, and write comparative essays that discuss pros and cons of solar energy.
Renewable vs. Nonrenewable
A very basic presentation on renewable vs. nonrenewable energy sources is here for you. Quite simply, learners view a slide with the one of the following words: oil, coal, wood, water, wind, natural gas, and sun. They must decide which column each word should go in: renewable or nonrenewable.
Conserving Nonrenewable Resources
Fifth graders define and identify several nonrenewable resources. Students, in groups, research nonrenewable resources. After researching on selected websites, 5th graders suggest ways to conserve limited resources. Students compose individual essays explaining their ideas for conserving nonrenewable resources.
Renewable and Nonrenewable Resources
In this resources worksheet, students will read three statements about how people use renewable and nonrenewable resources. Then students will write down what effect that use has on the resource. This worksheet is a graphic organizer.
What Are Nonrenewable Resources?
In this resources worksheet, students will compare and contrast examples of renewable resources and nonrenewable resources. This worksheet is a graphic organizer.
