Natural Resources
  • A natural resource is anything that humans use

  • This is a resource that is replaced in a short
    period of time.
  • Nonrenewable Resource
  • This is a resource that cannot be replaced in a
    short period of time.

Using Resources
  • Humans use resources in many ways. One of the
    most important is to create energy (electricity,
    heat, etc.)
  • Humans can use both renewable and nonrenewable
    resources to create energy.

Quick Research Ways to make Energy
  • You will select one way to make energy. You will
    research many things, for example
  • How humans use this resource to make energy
  • What are some effects of this way to make energy.
  • Any interesting information
