Updated: September 9 2021,


Students will be able to:

  • Identify productive resources.

In this economics activity, students will categorize the productive resources on a tropical island.


This individual activity requires students to explore and categorize the different types of resources available on a tropical island. Living on an island can be fun, but it can also be a long way from any other land masses. As a result, it can be a long distance from getting the resources for many of the goods and services you use every day. To complete this activity, students should follow the directions below:

  1. Review the resources found on a tropical island
  2. Put resources into correct category of natural, capital or human. Use either the Quizizz Activity or ReadyAssessments Activity.
