Natural resources are useful raw materials
that we get from the Earth. They occur
naturally, which means that humans
cannot make natural resources. Instead,
we use and modify natural resources in
ways that are beneficial to us. The
materials used in human-made objects
are natural resources.
Natural Resource Products or Services
Air Wind energy, tires
Foods (milk, cheese, steak, bacon)
and clothing (wool sweaters, silk
shirts, leather belts)
Coins, wire, steel, aluminum cans,
Natural gas Electricity, heating
Electricity, fuel for cars and
Wood, paper, cotton clothing,
Sunlight Solar power, photosynthesis
Hydroelectric energy, drinking,
Biotic and Abiotic Natural
There are several ways to classify natural
resources, including where they come from and if
they are renewable or not. If natural resources
come from living things or organic materials, then
they are considered biotic resources. Biotic
resources include plants, animals, and fossil fuels.
The three fossil fuels are coal, oil, and natural gas.
On the other hand, abiotic resources originate
from nonliving and inorganic materials. For
example, air, sunlight, and water are abiotic
natural resources. Minerals (gold, copper, iron,
diamonds) are also considered abiotic.
Renewable natural resources
Renewable resources are those that can
be replenished during our lifetime, such as
sunlight, wind, water, plants, and animals.
The rate at which renewable resources
are replenished may differ. For example,
we will never run out of sun and wind in
our lifetime because the Earth constantly
supplies these resources.
Nonrenewable Resources: are resources
for which there is a limited supply.
Examples fossil fuels and nuclear fuels.
