By Air, Land, or Sea: The Formation and Location of Our Natural Resources

This By Air, Land, or Sea: The Formation and Location of Our Natural Resources lesson plan also includes:

Coal forms from the ancient remains of plants that were alive on Earth before the dinosaurs! Scholars use their t-charts from the previous lesson over resources and research to determine if their information is correct. Through analysis of either websites or printed information, pairs then discuss how coal, oil, and natural gas is formed. Using their information, they then draw models of Earth's natural resources and their locations to round out the fourth installment of 12.
