  • 3. Questions
    • What is your favorite place?
    • Why are these places appealing to us?

  • 6. Complex Environment The way natural resources are used is determined by people as cultural, social, economic. Development is using resources to construct towns and cities and meet other needs for economic prosperity. What we do affects our environment.
  • 7. Natural Resources
    • Be naturally occurring resources that are found in nature.
    • Humans cannot make natural resources but they are used by humans in many ways.
  • 8. Kinds of Natural Resources (Seven Groups)
    • Wildlife
    • Air
    • Soil
    • Water
    • Minerals
    • Fossil Fuel
    • People
  • 9. 1. Wildlife -Domestication is when plants and animals are brought under the control of humans. -These have been bred to have characteristics that benefit humans.
    • Wildlife includes all plants, animals, and other living that have not been domesticated
    • This includes tiny one-celled organisms.
  • 10. 2. Air
    • Air is the mixture of gases that surrounds the earth.
    • All living thing must have air to survive.
  • 11. 3. Soil
    • Soil is the outer layer of the earth,s surface that support life.
    • Soil is a naturally occurring resource.
  • 12. 4. Water
    • Water is a naturally occurring compound made of hydrogen and oxygen (H 2 O)
    • Water is found in solid (ice), liquid, and gas (vapor) form.
  • 13. 5. Minerals
    • A mineral is an inorganic substance occurring naturally in the earth.
    • An inorganic substance does not have the structure of living things .
  • 14. 6. Fossil Fuels
    • Fossil fuels are materials used to provide energy.
    • They are created by the decomposition of dead plants and animals.
    • The three major groups of fossil fuels are petroleum, natural gas, and coal.
  • 15. 7. People
    • The most important natural resource is people.
    • They can use the earth’s resources wisely or abuse and damage the resources.
  • 16. How Natural Resources Interact
    • Natural resource interaction means “action on each other”
    • All natural resources-plants, animals, air, soil, water, and minerals-interact in the environment
  • 17. Kinds of Resource
    • Renewable natural resource
    • Nonrenewable natural resource
  • 18. Renewable Natural Resources
    • RNR is one that can be replaced when it is used.
    • In some cases, renewing takes a long time.
    • Renewing includes air, soil, and wildlife etc.
  • 19. Nonrenewable Natural Resources
    • A NNR cannot be replaced when it is used up.
    • NNR includes minerals, oil, and coal ect.
  • 20. Interdependent Relationships
    • Natural resource interdependent means that all resources depend on each other.
    • We must have plants for food and air exchange.
    • Plants use air and water to live and grow.
  • 21. Plants Provide for Needs
  • 22. Tests
    • What is your environment?
    • What are the seven major kinds of natural resources?
    • How are they clustered into renewable and nonrenewable groups?
    • How have people changed the natural landscape?
