As more interest in environmental problems arose, "biodegradable plastic" began to be treated in the textbooks of the senior high school as a major theme and students showed more interest in the new materials. I supposed it might be possible to give the students some incentive for the chemistry through such new materials. Therefore I decided to do research about the teaching materials of polylactic acid and put them into practice in classes. This practice contained very simple experiments, but by using new materials, students gained successful scientific understanding and logical reasoning of the processes involved. In addition, I could make sure that this method is very useful to increase the students' interest in chemistry.
