Are your students learning about natural resources and where they are found within an environment? This may be a topic that you are covering when learning about renewable and nonrenewable resources. If so, this resource can be a great addition to your science unit.

With this mini book, students will learn about natural resources and specific information about different types of natural resources. These natural resources include:

  • Soil
  • Trees
  • Fossil fuels
  • And more!

This mini-book includes 15 half pages of information about natural resources embedded with questions and checks for understanding. Students will write about the differences between renewable and nonrenewable energy sources, determine which pictures are renewable and nonrenewable resources, and identify which resources were used to make items such as bridges and gasoline.  

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

In addition to independent student work time, use this mini book as an activity for:

  • Science groups
  • Lesson warm-up
  • Lesson wrap-up
  • Fast finishers 
  • Homework assignment

Encourage students who need a bit of a challenge to create a poster or infographic showing different natural resources.  

If there are students who need additional support, invite them to reference previous assignments, posters, or anchor charts. Additionally, this activity can be completed in a 1-on-1 or small group setting.
