THE NATURAL RESOURCES OF THE PHILIPPINES (15 days)

MAJOR CONCEPT The Philippines is rich in natural resources. We have four kinds of natural resources. They are land resources, water resources, forest resources, and mineral resources. They are the sources of food and other necessities. Some resources are replaceable like trees and plants. Replace the old tress that were cut down by planting new ones. There are resources which should be conserved and utilized properly. Oil is an example of resource which is irreplaceable. Let us instill in our pupils the habit of proper utilization and conservation of our land, water, forest, and mineral resources.

II.

Show appreciation for these natural resources by means of the following: — Thanking God for the beautiful gifts He has given us — Developing proper values and attitudes in conserving our natural resources Encourage others to observe rules on proper ultilization and follow the provisions of the laws for the protection of our resources

Psychomotor •

Lesson 7

Explain the importance of wise utilization and proper conservation of our resources — Identify the different natural resources of the country — Recognize the things we get from our natural resources — Realize the importance of the laws which protect, preserve, and conserve our natural resources Enumerate the laws which conserve and protect our natural resources

Carry out the wise utilization and proper conservation of our natural resources through the following: — Participating actively in the campaign against improper use of our forests — Conserving energy and other fuels. You can walk instead of riding a jeep or tricycle to reach a place nearby — Planting trees on vacant lots — Reusing water for other household activities

TOPICS Land Resources, page 95; Water Resources, page 97; Forest Resources, page 100 19


III. MATERIALS Basic text; sand table; pictures of different natural resources of the Philippines; posters and chart; Filipinism CD-ROM 2 IV.

METHODS

A.

Preparation 1. Let the class play the “Give Me.” Divide the class into two groups — A and B. The teacher will say, “Give me a… .” (name of the object to be given). The first group to give the object asked for will be given a star. The star will be posted on the calendar of the group. The group with the most number of stars is the winner. 2. Classify the objects into the following categories: objects from land such as a plant, a flower, objects from water such as shells, a picture of a fish, and other water resources; other objects such as rattan, objects made of bamboo, or an orchid; the other category is a gold ring, bracelet, spoon, stones, sand, etc. (Note to the teacher: See to it that these objects are found inside the classroom. These objects must be classified into four kinds of natural resources — land, water, forest, and mineral).

B.

Development of the Lesson 1. Let the pupils recognize all the objects as belonging to land, water, forest, and mineral resources. Place the objects in their proper group, say A for land, B for water, and so on. 2. Identify the groups. All objects in Group A are land resources, those in Group B are water resources, those in Group C are forest resources and objects in Group D are mineral resources. 3. Give the definition of resources. Consult the worktext on page 94. 4. Explain the meaning of natural resources. Open the book on pages 95 and 97 and identify the products from land and water. These are called land and water resources.

20

5. Compare the products from the land as read in the book with that of the products from Group B. Tell the class that these are land resources. 6. Develop the understanding of the concept of water resources. Like land resources, the Philippines is also rich in water resources. 7. Take note of the pictures on page 103. Tell the class that mineral resources are similar to the objects given in Group D and forest resources are the objects/products coming from the forest similar to the objects found in Group C. Minerals are found below the surface of the earth. Mountains are good sources of minerals. There are many uses of minerals. Tell the class that this lesson will give them more facts about forest and mineral resources. 8. Review the lesson on land resources. Play a Guessing Game. Let the students guess the products that we get from the land. Inform them that there are more resources coming from the land. More information on land resources are found on pages 95-96. 9. Show a picture of a fiber which is made into cloth which, in turn, could be made into dresses, curtains, blankets, etc. Give examples of plants which are made into fibers. 10. Show a picture or bring samples of medicinal plants in class. Tell them that these plants can cure coughs and colds. 11. Let the class recite the poem, “The Plant.” The Plant Come let us plant many trees today Soon they’ll have shade for us to play. Some trees will bear fruit for you and me, Fruits that will make us strong and healthy.

12. 13.

If there are trees in school, allow the pupils to play under the trees. Let them experience the cool air given off by the trees. Present a role-play. Pretend that a student is a herbolaryo or a quack doctor who can cure coughs or colds with the use of herbs or medicinal plants.

Discuss the stanzas and explain how important land is to our life. Analyze the pictures on page 96. Discuss how one takes good care of some expensive things at home. How does one take good care of oneself? Correlate this with how we are supposed to take good care of our land resources. Read page 96 of the book. Show the proper conservation of land on the sand table. Explain the proper ways of conserving land as shown on page 96. Formulate the conclusion that the proper conservation of land is through wise and proper utilization. Understand the concept of water resources. Refer to page 97 of the textbook. Draw the sea turtle and sea cow. Label each. Study page 98 for the proper conservation of water resources. Draw the uses of water. Present a role play on how to conserve water. Share with the class any project of the barangay on how they were able to maintain the cleanliness of the bodies of water such as rivers, creeks, rivulets, springs, and lakes.

They prevent floods. Some trees, when cut down, can be made into furniture and used for building houses. Because of the importance of trees in our lives, there is a need to protect and conserve them. Forests are the home of rare animals. Many rare animals can be found only in the Philippines. Name some of the rare animals in the country. Look at the pictures on p. 101 Learn more of how to conserve our forests on page 102. Examine the pictures on the page. Cite more ways on how to conserve our forests.
