Assignments for Week 8
May 4th - May 8th

*Note: Please complete previous week's assignment before moving on to this assignment.

Intro to Natural Resources
A natural resource is a useful material that comes from the Earth. People use natural resources to meet their basic needs and to make their lives better.

Check out the videos below!

Main Ideas
1. Natural resources are materials with different properties and suited for different uses.
2. Non-renewable resources, such as fossil fuels, are limited and are consumed more quickly than they can be replaced (example: oil and coal).
3. Renewable resources such as solar and wind power are unlimited in supply.

Going Further
Please complete the following assignment:
1. Study Island: Natural Resources
