Since my unit is Earth's Resources, I would have my students complete this foldable. It is a great activity for them to work on since they must be able to differentiate between man-made and natural resources. They would draw resources, learn the definitions, and list more resources for each of the two categories when completing this assignment. BG
Natural Resources! Natural Resources! Natural Resources! Natural resources cootie catchers/ fortune tellers: These natural resources cootie catchers are a great way for students to have fun while learning about each type of natural resource. These cootie catchers contain the following vocabulary terms on natural resources: Renewable resources, Non-renewable resources, Geothermal energy, Nuclear energy, Hydroelectric energy, Solar energy, Fossil fuels, Wind energy
This is a matching game to reinforce and review the three types of resources: natural, capital, and human. Students will match specific examples of resources (e.g. chef, hammer, etc ..) to their correct category (e.g. human resource).
The Earth Science Interactive Notebook: Natural Resources chapter showcase student’s ability to: •Explain the main sources of non-renewable and renewable energy • Compare the advantages and disadvantages of types of energy •Explain why land is considered a resource •Explain why it is important to manage air and water resources wisely •Describe how individuals can help manage energy, land, water, and air resources wisely.
This is an excellent worksheet that could be used to asses what the students have learned about resources. It has students sort a word bank of resources in to man made and natural resources and then further into renewable and non-renewable. I would easily be able to use this as a summary assessment of the unit.
