  • Recognize that humans need resources found on Earth, and that these resources are either renewable or nonrenewable.
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria


The students will:

• Identify models of tenths and hundredths.
• Write tenths and hundredths as equivalent fractions and decimals.
• Explain how to compare two decimals.
• Apply understanding of decimals to solve money problems.

•    Define resources as anything from the environment that meets our needs and wants.

•    Identify renewable and nonrenewable resources found on Earth that humans need and how they are used.
•    Distinguish between renewable and nonrenewable resources found on Earth.
•    Explain that nonrenewable resources exist in a fixed quantity on Earth and may be used up.
