Prairies – Natural Resources – Jobs

As you know, we have been talking LOTS about natural resources. Today, we explored Google maps in the prairies to see what the physical geography (landscape) looks like, what natural resources we saw in those pictures, but then the next step; what jobs come from those natural resources. Check out the mindmap below to see the natural resources we saw, what we use them for, and then what jobs come from them.

Challenge: Talk to your parents and if they have a job that is directly connected with a natural resource found in the prairies, post it in a comment below!

    My Dad works in the oil patch. He is a safety guy but he has worked in oil & gas since he was a teenager. He has worked on the drilling rigs and in well testing. With all his experience, he now is able to help workers stay safe in this sometimes dangerous industry.
