A natural resource is something that we use that occurs naturally in the environment. Teach your child about the densest and heaviest natural resource: rocks! People have used rocks for centuries to build things as big as cathedrals or pyramids or as small as a diamond ring. Can your child think of other ways we use rocks? He'll draw two examples, then write sentences to describe them.
