This set engages student thinking regarding the concept of resources, both human and otherwise. Students identify the relationship between resources, and the people who extract or cultivate them. Students learn that this relationship can create population shift, migration and the establishment of cultures. Resources, labor and community are intrinsically tied together. Students develop a knowledge base in which they will be able to make inference on a broader variety of subjects. This results in student learning gain, which can be applied in a much larger context.
