As a subject, social study is relatively new in the curriculum of schools in the country (both primary and secondary schools).

However, this discipline has some problems in its teaching learning processes one of such problems is that of teaching resources to be used by the teachers.

Furthermore, it is also pertinent to add that, the modern trend in education is to view teaching resources from the perspective of providing direct purposeful experience for the learner’s and the teaching of social studies in secondary schools in Nigeria
