Grade 15 - Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources

Natural Resources Systems (Credit: 0.50)

People depend on natural resources. Regions, cultures, nations, and societies are shaped by how people use land, water, plants, and wildlife. The large and small ecosystems that make up the environment are complex. Each component of our ecosystem depends on another. The purpose of this course is to provide students with an overview of the planet’s natural resource systems. Students will explore and develop a basic understanding of how the systems relate to one another other. Students will consider the role people play in managing, using, protecting, and conserving natural resources. In addition, the course will provide information about many different careers that are available to students who are interested in natural resources and natural resource management.
