Transcript

  • 1. Earth's Resources by: Heather Carter
  • 2. Earth's Resources A resource is something we can use to make our lives better. The Earth has many resources that benefit us. We call them "Natural Resources." Some of the resources we get from the Earth are: water air sunlight soil plants animals rocks and minerals fossil fuels (coal, oil, natural gas)
  • 3. Brain Pop Jr. Natural Resources, Reduce Reuse Recycle, Rocks & Minerals Click on the image below to watch.
  • 4. Renewable vs. Non-Renewable Some natural resources can be replaced within a few years or within a human lifetime. These are called renewable resources. Trees, sun, wind, and water are examples of renewable resources. They are resources we most likely will not run out of. Non-renewable resources cannot be replaced at the rate they are being used up. They take hundreds, thousands, and even millions of years to be made. Once they are used up, they are gone! Some examples of nonrenewable resources are the fossil fuels oil, natural gas, and coal.

  • 7. Non-Renewable Resources Fossil Fuels: Click on the word to see a short video about each. Coal Natural Gas Oil / Petroleum
  • 8. Brain Pop: Fossil Fuels Click on the image below to watch.
  • 9. Why are Earth's resources important to us?
  • 10. Earth materials are very useful to us. We use them to make our lives better.
  • 11. How do we use Earth materials?
  • 12. Earth Materials Used for Fuel Fuel is a material that stores energy for future use. (potential energy). You can kind of think of it like “power.” Coal- to make electricity or heat our homes Wood- an inefficient way to make heat or light Natural Gas- to make electricity or heat our homes Oil- to make electricity, heat our homes, or power our vehicles
  • 13. Alternative Ways to Make Energy Without Using Fossil Fuels Solar Power Wind Power Hydropower
  • 14. Earth Materials Used for Building Structures Iron- bridges and fences Iron is used to make steel which is then used for buildings such as skyscrapers. Stone- houses, fences Brick- (made from clay) houses, buildings Concrete- skyscrapers Wood- houses
  • 15. The Lorax by Dr. Seuss Click the image to watch.
  • 16. Earth Materials Used for Enhancing Transportation Aluminum- airplanes, cars, bicycles Titanium- airplanes, cars, bicycles Sand and Gravel- making roads Clay- cement and concrete for driveways Steel (from iron)- bicycles, cars, trains, ships
  • 17. Earth Materials Used for Making Products Oil- plastic products like your cell phone and Playstation Wood- paper, furniture Plants- medicine, food, clothing (cotton) Soil- crops for food Animals- food for humans, clothing (leather) Clay- plates, bowls, cups, flower pots, statues Copper- inside cords to conduct electricity
