1 An interactive Tutorial Click here to Begin

2 * In this tutorial, you will be asked to do two things. * First, you will work your way through the Renewable and Nonrenewable Resources lesson. * Second, you will need to take the short assessment, and complete it successfully by answering all the items correctly. If you do not answer all the items correctly, you will have to redo the tutorial until at least 4 of the items are answered correctly. * Click Quit at any time to exit the Tutorial. * Lets get started! Begin

3 A Lesson Next

4 * Things and Materials that humans can obtain naturally from the Earth are known as Natural Resources. There are two types of these: * Renewable Resources * Nonrenewable Resources * Lets look at them more closely… Next

5 * Renewable Resources are resources that either never run out like wind and solar energies, or are able to be replaced like corn for fuel and trees for building materials. Next

6 * Other things such as animals, water and the Earths heat are renewable as well. Next

7 * Are all Renewable resources the same? No they are not. * Resources such as wind, solar, water, and heat from the earth (Geothermal) are abundant but must be harnessed and transformed to a usable form like electric current. * Resources such as plants, trees, and animals can be replaced as new offspring are produced, however if use out paces the number of new offspring then the resource could be used up and nonrenewable. Next

8 * Nonrenewable Resources are resources that once they are used can not be readily replenished like Fossil fuels (Oil, Coal, and Natural gas) and Minerals used in making metals. Next

9 * Are Nonrenewable resources gone forever when they are used up? * No, however it may take millions of years for thing link oil, coal, and natural gas to be remade by natural processes in the Earth. If they used up by one generation of humans it would be thousands of generations before they would be available again, if at all. They are, in effect, nonrenewable to the people that currently use them. * Many products made from Nonrenewable Resources like metals and plastics can be recycled giving them a longer life of use. However, there is a finite number of times that these resources can be recycled before they can not be reused again. Next

10 * Similarities: * Both are natural resources * Both can be used as Fuels or Building Materials * Both can be used up forever if not managed correctly * Both can benefit in longer use from recycling * Differences: * The time it takes for renewable resources to be replenished is relatively short (within a human lifespan). * Nonrenewable resources can not readily be replenished, and the only way to make them last longer is through recycling Next

11 A Quiz: Click on the link on the question page to chose your answer. If you are correct the next question will appear. If not, you will have to go through the lesson again. Next

12 Is this a Picture of a Renewable or Non Renewable Resource? Renewable Non Renewable

13 Can both Renewable and Non Renewable resources be recycled? Yes No

14 True or False: A Renewable Resource can take many, many generations to replenish itself. True False

15 True or False: Solar Energy is a Renewable resource? True False

16 Fill in the blank: Wind is a _______________ resource. Renewable Non Renewable

17 * Sorry, your answer is incorrect. You need to review the lesson some more, and try again. Click Here to return to the Lesson.Here

18 * Congratulations! You have answered all 5 questions correctly. You know your resources. Click Here to return to the Title slide.Here
