Your body has natural resources also

HEART - pumps blood carrying oxygen and nutrients through your body

LUNGS - to breathe in fresh air and breathe out stale air

LIVER AND KIDNEYS -to clean away toxins

Exercise keeps you strong

All parts of your body work together
to keep you alive and healthy.

Nutritious naturally grown food keeps you healthy

Breathing fresh air gives you lots of energy

What happens if you get an infection in the
natural resources of your body?

You get sick and don't feel well.

I feel yukky

I can't smile when I'm sick

The infection is toxic pollution
It harms your natural resources.
It harms your body's environment.

Then you need a special investigator to find out what is making you sick and to help you get well.

Your body's special investigator is your doctor.

The doctor can tell you what medicine to take to get rid of the toxic infection, so your body can get healthy again.

Good food, exercise and fresh air work together to keep you healthy and smiling

Healthy body parts working together

 

I'm the Sun - a natural resource.  I provide heat and energy.  Like my shades?

Earth's natural resources need to stay healthy too!

WATER
To clean the atmosphere and the environment,
and to nourish plants and animals

SOIL
To filter the water, provide nourishment for plants and some animals,
and recycle material to be used again

PLANTS AND TREES
To absorb carbon from the atmosphere and release oxygen.
To supply food and medicine, and provide shelter for plants and animals

ATMOSPHERE
Air surrounding the planet containing
nitrogen, oxygen, water vapor, other gases, and many tiny particles


To protect life on the planet, shielding it from harmful radiation from the sun.

To provide a blanket of warmth around the planet

How about using my energy - it's free and it's clean. Solar Power Forever!  Well, 5 billion more years anyway.  Then it's gonna be chilly!

The atmosphere is being damaged by carbon dioxide overload,
so more harmful radiation is reaching us on Earth -
and the blanket of warmth is getting warmer!

What happens when pollution gets in Earth's natural resources?
They become impure and poisonous,
and then plants and animals get sick.

Soil pollution makes plants die

Earth - feeling yukky

Sickie Earth

I'm allergic to pollution


Toxics and pollution harm the Earth's environments,
just like they harm our bodies.

The Earth's doctors are the Earth Scientists.
They investigated the environments' illnesses
and said:

Solutions to problems

Stop environmental destruction

POLLUTION OF AIR, WATERS AND SOIL
CLEAR-CUTTING FORESTS
DUMPING TOXIC WASTE
CUTTING OLD-GROWTH TREES
HARMFUL FISHING METHODS
DEPLETING AND WASTING NATURAL RESOURCES
DESTRUCTION OF OZONE LAYER
DESTRUCTION OF BIOLOGICAL DIVERSITY
EXTINCTION OF SPECIES

Environmental destruction is WRONG!

REMEMBER TO

REDUCE - REUSE - RECYCLE

Reduce - Reuse - Recycle

Save energy - remember to turn out the lights when the party's over
AND SAVE ENERGY

How about planting some more trees - they make me feel "TREEmendous"!

IS THE SUN A RENEWABLE RESOURCE?

We received this question from a student who presents a very good point for debate on the subject.

"Hi,  I am doing a paper on non-renewable and renewable resources.  
All the information I have found says that the sun is a renewable resource.  I disagree with this because in science class we learned that the sun is a star.  Therefore, it has a lifespan.  That is why it can explode!  So if it can explode and not be able to be used again, how can it be a renewable resource?"

All of our natural resources are essential
in helping to keep the Earth's natural processes in balance
in order to provide a life-sustaining environment.

Now that you have absorbed all that information,
we're going to take a trip around our planet
and give it a health checkup.

We'll do some investigation, like doctors and scientists do,
and look at the Earth's environments and the plants and animals.

On this trip you will go exploring, join in activities,
and do science projects

Let's have some fun while we learn about plants, animals, our Earth, and the universe.
while you learn about plants, animals,
our Earth, and the universe.

You will meet people who are helping save the natural environment.

Are you ready to go on our exciting journey?

Click on me and let's go exploring

This cheetah wants to take you there.
Click on him and set him free.

Have a nice day! (solar-powered greetings)
