From huge mountains of trash to the recycling of individual materials: By dealing with the topic of recycling, the students will become sensitized to an important topic of environmental protection and sustainable use of our Earth. In working through the planned subexperiments, they will be shown opportunities for how they themselves can make a contribution toward preserving the Earth in their daily lives. The students will learn that waste separation is important and that new products can be made from various old materials.
