by Kevin Stark There are two major categories of energy: renewable and non-renewable. Non-renewable energy resources are available in limited supplies, usually because they take a long time to replenish. The advantage of these non-renewable resources is that power plants that use them are able to produce more power on demand. The non-renewable energy resources
Talisman of great wealth
- Not all non-renewable resources are usable only once, though. Recycling is a great way to renew non-renewable resources because this is the process of making used materials usable again. Cardboard ...
- The slideshow defines what renewable and non-renewable resources are, while the fill in the blank activity gives students different examples of each type of resource. The open ended questioning causes students to consider how the Earth's population would be affected, if non-renewable resources were expended.
The difference between renewable resources and non-renewable resources is that non-renewable resources are finite - they will run out one day. Non-renewable resources include things like coal and oil. Whereas renewable resources can be used again and again and will not run out. This includes things such as wind power and hydroelectricity.
- 1. The energy we use every day comes from two major sources: renewable energy and non-renewable energy sources. 2. Renewable energy is energy that can be replenished. Such energy sources are always available. 3. Non-renewable energy is energy that cannot be replenished when it is used up. Renewable Energy Sources
Nonrenewable Resources Nonrenewable resources take millions of years to form. Because of the time it takes to reform them, they are considered nonrenewable. Once these resources are used up they are considered gone. Non-renewable resources are rocks, minerals, oil and coal. Almost all of the energy that humans use comes from this type of resource.
- This is an activity intended for 2nd-4th grade science students. We have provided detailed instructions, black-line master (to print from). Students are to separate the animals according to if the material is a renewable or nonrenewable resource.
Renewable Resources- Renewable resources are natural resources that can be replenished in a short period of time. Examples- Wind, Water, Solar, Geotherma l Non renewable Resources-A nonrenewable resource is a natural resource that cannot be re-made or re-grown at a scale comparable to its consumption.
- There are two main types of energy; renewable and non-renewable, basically Most of the energy we use comes from fossil fuels, such as coal, natural gas and petroleum. Uranium is another nonrenewable source, but it is not a fossil fuel.

- Fossil fuels are referred to as nonrenewable energy sources because, once used, they are gone. Scientists are exploring the practicality of other sources called renewable energy sources. These include sun, wind, geothermal, water, and biomass.
This Renewable and Nonrenewable Energy Activities & Project is suitable for 2nd - 10th Grade. Energize an environmental science unit on natural resources with this collection of instructional materials. From simple coloring sheets for primary grade children, to guiding questions for a high school research report, a wide variety of worksheets and activities are provided that engage children in ...
- This is a worksheet that I use to reinforce the knowledge about natural resources: the renewable and the non-renewable resources. Then, I ask the students to fill in the blanks with the correct answers according to the natural resources lesson. The key answer page is included.
