2Welcome 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.Let’s get started!BeginWelcome
3Renewable and Nonrenewable Resources: A LessonNext
4Natural Resources Next Let’s look at them more closely… Things and Materials that humans can obtain naturally from the Earth are known as Natural Resources. There are two types of these:Renewable ResourcesNonrenewable ResourcesLet’s look at them more closely…Natural ResourcesNext
5Renewable Resources Next 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.Renewable ResourcesNext
6Renewable Resources Next Other things such as animals, water and the Earth’s heat are renewable as well.Renewable ResourcesNext
7Renewable Resources Next 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.Renewable ResourcesNext
8Nonrenewable Resources 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.Nonrenewable ResourcesNext
9Nonrenewable Resources 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.Nonrenewable ResourcesNext
10Similarities and Differences Both are natural resourcesBoth can be used as Fuels or Building MaterialsBoth can be used up forever if not managed correctlyBoth can benefit in longer use from recyclingDifferences: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 recyclingSimilarities and DifferencesNext
11Renewable and Nonrenewable Resources: 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
