Mining in Texas

In this mining and nonrenewable resources worksheet, students read about mining in Texas and simulate the extraction of nonrenewable minerals. They use cookies and their components to represent the minerals they will mine and they answer a series of questions about the cost, the process and what remains in the cookie that is not useful or nonrenewable. They calculate their profit/loss and answer 5 questions about their results.

I've been playing around in the account all morning and I have to say I'm very impressed! The site is amazing! I'm also a Title I tutor (and a summer tutor) so this will help me out a TON when coming up with materials for my students both during Title I tutoring and summer tutoring! The amount of time Lesson Planet will save me is going to be mind blowing!
