Natural Resources Crossword Puzzle

Type
Crossword
Description

Any material made naturally that is used by humans or living things. Natural Resources
A natural resource that can be used and replaced over a relatively short time. Renewable Resource
A natural resource that cannot be replaced or that can be replaced only over thousands or millions of years. Nonrenewable resource
Energy as solar, wind, or nuclear energy that can replace traditional fossil fuel sources, such as coal, oil, and natural gas. Alternative energy
Renewable energy derived from burning organic materials such as wood and alcohol. Biomass energy
Conservation method in which old materials are processed to make new ones. Recycling
Nonrenewable energy resource, such as oil and coal, formed over millions of years from the remains of dead plants and other organisms. Fossil Fuel
Inexhaustible energy resource that used hot magma or hot, dry rocks from below Earth's surface to generate electricity. Geothermal energy
Electricity produced by water-power using large dams in a river. Hydroelectric energy
Alternative energy source that is based on atomic fission. Nuclear energy
Energy from the Sun that is clean, inexhaustible, and can be transformed into electricity by solar cells. Solar energy
Careful use of resources to reduce damage to the environment though such methods as composting and recycling materials. Conservation
A resource that remains in constant supply and will not run out. Inexhaustible source
Fossil fuel formed from marine organisms that is often found in tilted or folded rock layers and is used for cooking and heating. Natural gas
