After completing this activity students will be able to explain the relationships between natural resources and the geological processes that led to their creation. Students will plot the location of active volcanoes on a world map and using longitude and latitude coordinates (map is included). Students will then shade areas of active copper mines around the global and see that natural resources, like copper, are not evenly distrusted around the globe. Aligns with MS-ESS3-1 NGSS standard.
This activity includes:
* student activity directions with background information
* coordinates for active volcanoes
* world map to plot coordinates
* copper mine map
* follow up/assessment questions
