Review and Study Guide for APES Unit 6: Energy Resources and Consumption, aligned to the New AP Environmental Science 2019 Course and Exam Description!

Works great as an AP Environmental Science Test Review! This resource is designed to help guide your APES students to learn, study, and review all seventeen topics in Unit 6.

Each of College Board's Essential Standard is written out on the left side of the paper, with focused, open ended questions on the right side for students to work through. Students will know exactly what they are responsible for learning!

Review and Study Questions for all thirteen Topics in Unit 6: Energy Resources

  • Topic 6.1: Renewable and Nonrenewable Resources 
  • Topic 6.2: Global Energy Consumption 
  • Topic 6.3: Fuel Types and Uses 
  • Topic 6.4: Distribution of Natural Energy Resources 
  • Topic 6.5: Fossil Fuels 7 
  • Topic 6.6: Nuclear Power 
  • Topic 6.7: Energy from Biomass 
  • Topic 6.8: Solar Energy 
  • Topic 6.9: Hydroelectric Power 
  • Topic 6.10: Geothermal Energy 
  • Topic 6.11: Hydrogen Fuel Cell 
  • Topic 6.12: Wind Energy 
  • Topic 6.13: Energy Conservation

Includes a full answer key!

Save hours of time searching for resources to teach with! Purchase includes a list of links to 57 extra resources - arranged and organized for each unit topic. The list includes online interactive activities, video clips, and Lab ideas and classroom activities for your students.

Your AP Environmental Science students benefit tremendously from having quick access to the Essential Knowledge standards and these guiding questions. After going through each set, they will feel confident they are ready for the Exam!

This resource can be used…

  • While going through a Unit as a working document, students can add to it as they learn
  • As a guide to complete while reading the Text Book
  • Just before a Unit test as a study guide
  • At the end of the semester to prepare for the AP Environmental Science Exam

It is helpful to have students begin by going through the Essential Knowledge itself, highlighting key vocabulary.  This gives them a good foundation to grow from, they know what to look for and what is important as they learn about, or review for the Unit.

When my students use these as review, I put them into small groups of three or four. They work together to complete the questions. Then students get into new groups and review their answers. I help guide them and help with questions that they can not come to an agreement on.

Plus, Now that College Board has revised the AP Environmental (APES) curriculum for 2019, this resource can be used to help teachers re-organize and align their units.

Evaluate or refine a technological solution that reduces impacts of human activities on natural systems. Examples of data on the impacts of human activities could include the quantities and types of pollutants released, changes to biomass and species diversity, or areal changes in land surface use (such as for urban development, agriculture and livestock, or surface mining). Examples for limiting future impacts could range from local efforts (such as reducing, reusing, and recycling resources) to large-scale geoengineering design solutions (such as altering global temperatures by making large changes to the atmosphere or ocean).
Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the availability of natural resources, occurrence of natural hazards, and changes in climate have influenced human activity. Examples of key natural resources include access to fresh water (such as rivers, lakes, and groundwater), regions of fertile soils such as river deltas, and high concentrations of minerals and fossil fuels. Examples of natural hazards can be from interior processes (such as volcanic eruptions and earthquakes), surface processes (such as tsunamis, mass wasting and soil erosion), and severe weather (such as hurricanes, floods, and droughts). Examples of the results of changes in climate that can affect populations or drive mass migrations include changes to sea level, regional patterns of temperature and precipitation, and the types of crops and livestock that can be raised.
Evaluate competing design solutions for developing, managing, and utilizing energy and mineral resources based on cost-benefit ratios. Emphasis is on the conservation, recycling, and reuse of resources (such as minerals and metals) where possible, and on minimizing impacts where it is not. Examples include developing best practices for agricultural soil use, mining (for coal, tar sands, and oil shales), and pumping (for petroleum and natural gas). Science knowledge indicates what can happen in natural systems—not what should happen.
Create a computational simulation to illustrate the relationships among the management of natural resources, the sustainability of human populations, and biodiversity. Examples of factors that affect the management of natural resources include costs of resource extraction and waste management, per-capita consumption, and the development of new technologies. Examples of factors that affect human sustainability include agricultural efficiency, levels of conservation, and urban planning. Assessment for computational simulations is limited to using provided multi-parameter programs or constructing simplified spreadsheet calculations.
