“An Illustrated Guide to Recycling Unicharm Disposable Diaper”
・The starting point is to regard elementary and middle school students as "small adults" and to respect and deepen their intellect and curiosity.
・It is not just a reading material for "knowing" and "understanding", but has the contents that give them an opportunity to think about their own solution and communicate it to someone.
・The recycling of disposable diapers is explained in four "Study Notes" with illustrations, and the key items are deeply digged into to expand knowledge and deepen understanding.
・By pressing the intuitive switch in the illustrations, it leads students to a logical understanding and a familiar action that they can do by themself.
