This lesson provides your students with the real life connection they need to understand this important topic. Take them into a coal mine. Take them to the great lakes, the ocean. Have they ever seen a natural gas rig? Coal, water, trees, animals and more are all adventures in this presentation. How are all of these important for life as we know it? Where are they found? How long does it take to get these resources that we use back? This is an amazing lesson that will take you around the world. ENJOY. I think that this lesson can be used for multiple grade levels.
