Geography year 7 unit 1
What is geography?
Environmental resources
Environmental resources
are things that nature provides and which humans use such as water. They can be renewable, non renewable or continuous resources

Renewable resources
, are resources that, if managed properly can be renewed after use such as soil
Non-renewable resources
are finite (a limited amount). Once used they cannot be used again.
Continuous resources
have a continuous supply and can be used over and over again such as sunshine

Final activity
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.

Environmental resource
Crude oil
(fossil fuel)
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.

Fresh 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
Learning intention
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)
Success Criteria
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.
