Earth: The Source of Resources
Learners develop a deeper understanding of what it means to be an environmental steward. They identify environmental misuses of natural resources in their home, school, and community.
This lesson is intended to foster an understanding that natural resources require careful stewardship and that recycling is one of the ways we can guarantee that these resources will be able to continue to sustain life on "space station" Earth.
The intent of this lesson is to teach the learner that while our natural resources are readily available, their continued availability depends upon the responsible behavior and stewardship of everyone.
This lesson will lead learners to the understanding that responsible stewardship of natural resources intended for the common good applies to all environments, not just National Parks.
This lesson will highlight environmental concerns that impact the home, school and community and provide the learners with hands-on opportunities to make a difference in the environment through the implementation of a service plan.
