Timber, a Sustainable and Renewable Resource – Stage 2

Timber, a Sustainable and Renewable Resource. The aim of this unit is for students to investigate how and why wood is considered to be a sustainable and renewable resource. Students will be able to identify the properties of wood that make it a versatile material and determine products that are made from wood. The investigations will be centred around the concept of sustainability. There are multiple activities to use in this lesson for cross-curricular outcomes. You may choose to undertake all of them, or alternatively, choose those relevant to the objective you wish to achieve.
