What is geography?
are things that nature provides and which humans use such as water. They can be renewable, non renewable or continuous resources
, are resources that, if managed properly can be renewed after use such as soil
are finite (a limited amount). Once used they cannot be used again.
have a continuous supply and can be used over and over again such as sunshine
In 6 groups allocated by the teacher have a look at the uses of water sheet. Identify who is using the water and how it is being used. You have 5 - 10 minutes to do this and you will present your findings to the rest of the class.
Water in our world
In your table groups identify as many renewable, non renewable and continuous resources as you can. Then identify what products they can be turned into and how these products help society.
Petrol, diesel, kerosene
How it improves society
Powers transport, speeds up communication and travel, fuel for heating
Activity: True or False
An environmental resource is something that occurs naturally and humans use it to survive and improve their lives
Environmental resources can be renewable, non renewable or continuous
Water is an example of both a continuous and renewable resource
Coal is a renewable resource
Water covers 70% of the earths surface
How much of that water do you think is fresh water?
Water in our world
There is only 3% freshwater and 97% salt water.
Groundwater- held below the ground in soil, rocks or soil moisture (Green water)
surface water (blue water)
Glaciers, ice and permanent snow
Polluted water is known as grey water
Consider over the next week how often you use water. e.g. sprinklers, flushing the toilet
In this lesson students will learn what environmental resources are and be able to identify renewable, non renewable and continuous resources as well as begin to understand water in our world (grey, blue & green water)
In groups students will give examples of renewable, non renewable and continuous resources and how they help society. Students will also work in groups to explore a certain culture and how they use water and explain their findings to the class.
