Activity Overview

A natural resource is something that occurs in nature and is used to make products that contribute to a region’s economy. Many natural resources can be found in Canada, but fresh water is by far the most important to Canadians. Some of the other natural resources that are abundant in Canada are oil, trees, minerals such as gold, silver, and copper, fish, and coal. For this activity, students will research the natural resources of Canada and create a storyboard to illustrate their use and importance. Spider maps are an excellent tool to help students organize facts in a systematic and visual manner.
