This activity asks students to consider the natural resources that Alberta and Canada use for electricity generation. It challenges them to think about the social, economic and environmental factors that determine which natural resources each province and territory use for electricity. It is designed to be given to students to work on individually with minimal instructions.
- Students will investigate the natural resources used in Alberta and Canada for electricity generation.
- Students will explore the reasons why provinces/territories use certain resources more than others, considering factors such as population size, accessibility and environmental concerns.
