III. Strategy/Procedure

Teacher’s Activity Learner’s Activity

A. Preliminary Activities

May we all stand for the prayer. Who can lead the
prayer? (A student lead the prayer)

Good morning class! Good morning maam!

You may now take your seat. Thank you maam.

Let me check the attendance first. Make sure that

you are in your proper seats so that you will not be
marked absent. (Check attendance using a seat plan)

Very Good! Everybody is present.

B. Review of the Past Lesson

Do you still remember our lesson last meeting? Yes maam.

What had we discussed? We have discussed on using latitude and longitude in
locating places on Earth.
Yes. Exactly! We made use of latitude and longitude
in locating different places on Earth.

What is the relationship between the latitude of a

place and the climate it experiences? The closer the latitude to the equator, the warmer the
climate and the closer it is to the poles, the colder the
climate they experience.
Very Good!

C. Motivation

To start our new lesson, I will be showing you a

video of the beauty and splendor of the Philippines.

And now, just sit back, relax and let me take you to a
tour around the Philippine Archipelago. (Show video
presentation about the physical features and varied
life forms in the Philippines)

D. Presentation / Discussion

What are the things you have observed in the video?

Yes! Exactly. Our country is bountiful in natural

resources starting from varied physical features We were able to explore the different rich natural
down to the diverse plant and animal forms. resources found in the Philippine Archipelago.

Talking about how lucky we are in the Philippines to

have such things, what can you associate with the
word “resources”?

Yes? These are the things that are available around us

which we use for different purposes.

Good. How about another idea. Resources are things that can be used to support,
help, or drawn on when needed.


Based on your answers, we can define resources as

things used by people in order to survive or satisfy

Anybody who wants to give examples of resources? (student answer varies)

e.g., air, water, plants, animals, soil, rocks, minerals,
crude oil, and other fossil fuels, sunlight, wind, car,
house, clothes, jewelry, money, etc.
Very Good!

Resources such as air, water, plants, animals, soil,

rocks, minerals, crude oil, and other fossil fuels,
sunlight, and wind are considered as natural
resources because they are already available in the

Very Good!

Now, since we are talking about resources,

Philippines as an archipelago, is considered to be
rich in natural resources!

Let’s name out the natural resources of our country.

We are blessed with the presence of different water
Bays, rivers, lakes, falls, gulfs, straits and swamps.
What are these water forms
These bodies of water support the survival of diverse
What is the importance of these water forms? organisms for food as well as for economic

The presence of water in a specific environment is

said to be accountable for supporting high
biodiversity in that area. Biodiversity means the
presence various plants and animal life in a particular

Can we name some of the plants and animals we can (students answer will vary)
find in our country?

Those species that you have mentioned are all


Since our country is rich also in biodiversity,

Philippines is considered to be the home of endemic
species. When we say endemic species, these are
species which can be found only in a certain area and
not in any other places.
Tamaraw, tarsier, Mouse deer (Pilandok)
What endemic species do you know which exist only
in the Philippines?
Tamaraw in Mindoro, Tarsier in Bohol and Mouse
Where can we find them? Deer or Pilandok in Palawan (etc.)

(students answer may vary)
We also have mineral deposits in the country. Gold, Copper, Chromite, Iron, Manganese, Nickel,
What are the minerals that you know? Sand, Limestone, Marble, Clay, Silica, etc.

Some are found near volcanoes, in rocks and near

Where are these minerals located or can be found? rivers, beaches etc.

Philippine mineral deposits are classified as either

metallic or non-metalllic.

Gold, Copper, Chromite, Iron, Manganese and

Nickel are some of the metallic minerals we have
while Sand, Limestone, Marble, Clay, and Silica are
some of the non-metallic minerals we have in our
country. We use metals in softdrink industry, at home, in
school, farm, and other places.
Where do we usually use metals?

Yes indeed.

Mineral deposits can be found were volcanoes or

trenches are present. We have many volcanoes in the
Philippines and most of them are active. (Answers may vary) Mt. Mayon, Mt. Pinatubo

Can you name some of the famous volcanoes?

Because of the presence of numerous volcanoes in

our place, our country belongs to the “Pacific Ring
of Fire”.

Aside from that we also have energy resources. We have solar energy, geothermal energy,
hydrothermal energy, wind energy and natural gas.
What are some of these energy resources?
Geothermal Energy Plant at Puhagan, Valencia
Do we have examples of the energy resources in our

Very Good!

E. Practice

We have already familiarized ourselves with the

natural resources we have in our country.

Today, we are going to brainstorm on how people

destroy natural resources.
(Students are starting to form their group)
Now, I want everybody to group themselves
according to your monitorial group in the class.

Group 1 will saty here in front at the right corner,

group 2 here in front at the center, group 3 here in
front at the left corner, group 4 at the back left
corner, group 5 will be at the back center, and group
6 at the back right corner.

In the count of five, you should be sitted with your

group.(1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

Ok. Everybody settle down. Now that you are with

your group, you use a leader, secretary and two
representative or reporters.

Listen to the instruction.

I be showing you some illustrations. You will be

shown a “Before” and “After” of a certain situation
or activities. Afterwards, you are going to determine
the effects of these activities to our natural resources.
Take note of the group number in the illustration.
Each group have their own assigned situation based
on the illustration. Yes maam.

Did you get it?

I will be giving first this envelope with a cartolina (students will open the envelope)
and pen inside. On the cartolina, there is a column
for human activity that is written and on the other
column is the effects. You are going to write down
the effects on the cartolina provided under “Effects”.
A leader or member of the group will present their
work in the class. You are going to discuss the
human activities and its effects in front of the class.

Now read the human activities that is assigned to

your group.

Lets start.

(Present “Before” and “After” of a certain situation

or activities in PPT)
Human Activity Effects

Before After When roads are built,

mountains are blown off
using dynamite.
Group 1
People cut too many trees
for lumber or paper or
building houses.
Group 2
Ricefields are turned into
residential or commercial
Group 3

More factories are being

built to keep up with the
demands of a fast growing
Group 4 population & industrialization

Too much mining & quarrying

for the porpuse of getting
Group 5 precious metals & gravel/stone

Group 6 Plastics and other garbage are

thrown on the rivers and other
bodies of water

Now that you already visualize the way people

destroy natural resources, you can now start writing (Students perform the activity)
down the effects. Let’s do this for 10 minutes.

After Performing Activity…

May I request all groups to paste their work on the Group Report

Anybody who has a question to the group? (Somebody from other groups will ask the reporter)

As we can see, nature provided us with the rich

natural resources which are of great benefit to us. In
return, let us protect and conserve the richness of the
country’s natural resources.

IV. Evaluation

Direction: On a one fourth (1/4) sheet of paper, answer the question below with a brief answer.
1. Since many of the resources that we have today are not in endless supply, as a student in what way
can you help conserve and protect our natural resources?

V. Assignment

Make a slogan showing how to protect and conserve our natural resources. Put it in a ¼ cartolina of
any color. Design your slogan artistically and make it presentable to the class. Deadline for the
submission of slogan will be on Monday..
