The teacher instructions include information on the following: the main question, relevance to the curriculum, skills, notes on conducting the subexperiments, the research group, further research assignments, and the reference to values.

The experiment comprises three subexperiments:
• Recycling old materials
• Making new from old: Making paper
• Recycling organic waste

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.

Notes:
• Observe the safety information in the instructions as well as the applicable safety guidelines for your school.
• All materials mentioned in the instructions will have to be purchased directly from commercial sources.
