  • 10 Natural Resource Data Stations: Each station has maps and graphs to analyze for information such as resource distribution, use, risk of depletion, and impact on the environment. Each station focuses on just one natural resource at a time.
  • Student Sheet: This worksheet asks questions that guide students through examining the data at each station.

EASY PREP and easy to assign! Only 1 color copy per station is required (10 color pages total). Students can circulate throughout the stations, so there is no need to make color copies for each student. Each student or group needs one black-and-white answer sheet each.
