This activity pack will help your students define and identify the various types of economics resources including Natural, Human, Capital and Community Resources.

By interacting with classmates and considering their own experiences as a consumer your students will become experts in:

  • Defining and identifying the various types of economic resources.
  • Exploring the ways resources are currently used to meet these needs and wants and how resources might be used more sustainably to meet these needs and wants into the future. (ACARA)
