6.4.3 Lab: Investigate Resource Consumption
In this lab, you will be modeling resource consumption using cereal and spoons. You will then
design your own simulation and make some inferences about resource consumption in the real
world. As you go through the lab, imagine that the cereal you are using is a real resource such
as water, food, energy, land, minerals, coal, lumber, or wildlife.
Be sure to:
Follow safe practices during this investigation.
Think about what you are modeling as you go through the investigation. The pieces of
cereal represent a real-life resource. Keep in mind that the cereal could be water, food,
minerals, land, or other resources.
