Carolina EcoKits®: Resource Sustainability

(in stock)


Grades 9-12.

  • Recognize the reality of consumption as well as the value and necessity of conservation
  • Think critically about sustainable and unsustainable resource use practices
  • Learn the difference between renewable and nonrenewable resources

Students explore sustainable resource use practices by modeling the harvesting and management of several natural resources. They simulate the harvesting of timber as well as the excavation and retrieval of precious metals, gemstones, and fossil fuels from an ecosystem. They must confront the challenges involved with obtaining important natural resources while simultaneously attempting to protect and conserve the environment. Materials are sufficient for 32 students working in 8 groups of 4. Exercise requires 60 minutes.
