Productive Resources

Third grade learned to discriminate between and provide examples of natural, capital, and human resources. The children applied their knowledge of resources to determine our school's top 10 capital resources. As a conclusion to this week's learning, students spent Friday's class sorting images of productive resources and practiced recognizing how the resources correspond. 

Capital resources are things made by people to help workers make products or provide services. 
People's knowledge, skills, and hard work are human resources.
Natural resources are gifts of nature; they are not man-made.
Seeds and gems are natural resources.

Using the app Air Sketch to show what they know:

An egg is a natural resource; a farmer is a human resource that uses the egg.
Silverware is a capital resource; a waiter is a human resource that uses the silverware.
A tongue depressor is a capital resource; a doctor is a human resource that uses it. 
Wood is a natural resource; a ruler is a capital resource made from wood; a teacher is a human resource that uses the ruler.
