Push students to think where producers got those resources. Hold up an ice cream: Ask students where did my ice cream come from? What resources were needed to make this? Where did those resources come from? o Think Pair Share Natural Resource Hunt: In pairs students will be given pictures of three finished goods. As a team they must match the natural resource needed to make it. o Introduce students to the following natural resources: Wax, Cotton, Leather, Milk, Grain, Wood o Have pictures of each natural resource posted around the room. o Give pairs the three photos and five minutes to match their good to the correct resource. o After 5 minutes come together and look at the different posters and have students share their reasoning.
