Abstract
This research work examined the use of Audio-Visual Materials in teaching and learning among secondary school students in Sabon Gari Local Government Area of Kaduna State. Its main objective is to examine the impact of the use of Audio-Visual materials on the academic achievement of students. In this study, a quasi-experimental research design was used with a Classification of Living Things Achievement Test (CLTAT) as data collection instrument. This research analyze the necessity of audio-visual technology to teaching and also brings out the problems faced by using these technologies. It also aims to make science teachers aware of the strategies to use it in an effective manner. 100 students were used from five selected schools in Sabon Gari Local Government Area of Kaduna State for the study. The analytical tool used was t-test using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences version 22 (SPSS, 22). Thus from the results obtained, it shows that there is unavailability of such materials in the study area and with a significant level of 0.001 using T-test, it shows that using audio-visual aids in teaching classification of living things plays the role of enhancing students’ academic performance.
