Explain why natural resources are important, why they might be in danger of becoming exhausted, and what alternative resources are available. With this CD-ROM students learn the roles resources have in our lives and what makes them renewable. Plants and animals are presented as natural resources along with a discussion of the importance they play in achieving a balanced ecosystem. An objective view of nuclear energy is presented as well as the processes that form, obtain, and convert nonrenewable fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas. Your students will also discover the many advantages and disadvantages of using natural, cleaner sources of energy like the sun, wind, water, and geothermal heat.
