Students will discover that Saskatchewan is rich in natural resources, both in quantity and quality. These lesson plans deal with both non-renewable and renewable resources. In-classroom lesson plans discuss uses for resources, the difference between renewable and non-renewable resources, resource conservation, and sources of renewable energy. They include material lists, Saskatchewan ‘Fast Facts,’ and links to additional resources.

These Lesson Plans may be done on their own or as a complement to an in-Museum Saskatchewan Natural Resources Discovery Box program.
