    People often decide where to live based on the natural resources in the area. Natural resources are things that are useful to people and come from the earth. Materials for building houses are natural resources. So are foods, such as fruits, vegetables, animals that could be caught or hunted and water.

    The weather and landforms let certain things grow in different areas. They also determine(决定) which living things will be able to grow there. Areas with very rich soil are made to be good farming communities. Poor soil may send farmers to look for better places. However, areas with poor soil may attract those who have other purposes for the land. Poor soil doesn’t matter if you want to build a factory. It also doesn’t matter if it grows grass well.

    Each area attracts people based on their interests and purposes. Areas that support many different interests will naturally have larger populations. You may not think of the mountains, lakes or oceans as natural resources. In fact they are. Villages and cities built near water sources have been the most successful. People who want to catch fish for a living choose to live by the ocean, instead of the desert. People living near water can use it to meet their daily needs.

    Places that are difficult to reach will naturally have fewer people. Places that are high on mountain tops are not very desirable to most people. Neither are places that are in the middle of hot, dry deserts.

    For too long, humans have destroyed resources. We have been using up those that can’t be easily replaced. Renewable(可再生的) resources are those that can be replaced easily. We are lucky to have many resources that are renewable, such as the sun, wind, water and trees. We need to use more renewable resources. This will protect our planet.
