Natural

Natural resources are useful raw materials that we get from the Earth. They occur naturally, which means that humans cannot make natural resources. Instead, we use and modify natural resources in ways that are beneficial to us. (The materials used in human-made objects are natural resources.) Some examples of natural resources and the ways we can use them are listed in the table below. Air Animals Coal Minerals Natural Gas Oil Plants Sunlight Water Wind energy, tires Foods (milk, cheese, steak, bacon) and clothing (wool sweater, silk shirt, leather belt) Electricity Coins, wire, steel, aluminum cans, jewelry Electricity, heating Electricity, fuel for cars and airplanes, plastic Wood, paper, cotton clothing, fruits, vegetables Solar power, photosynthesis Hydroelectric energy, drinking, cleaning Classification of Natural Resources There are different ways to classify natural resources, including where they come from and if they are renewable or not. Biotic and Abiotic Natural Resources If natural resources come from living things or organic materials, then they are considered biotic resources. Biotic resources include plants, animals, and fossil fuels. The three fossil fuels are coal, oil, and natural gas. Fossil fuels are classified as biotic resources because they were formed from the decay of organic matter over millions of years. On the other hand, abiotic resources originate from nonliving and inorganic materials. For example, air, sunlight, and water are abiotic natural resources. Minerals (gold, copper, iron, diamonds) are also considered abiotic.
