While Daluba (2013) asserts that the objectives of agricultural science in secondary schools can only be attained through effective teaching and motivation of students by agricultural science teachers through the use of instructional resources. Teachers are expected to use different types of instructional resources(charts, film strips, survey equipment, models, farm tools, farm machinery, video, television, projectors, motion pictures etc.) to motivate learning.

Agricultural science is a vital subject for technological development in Nigeria. As such, its teaching and learning in secondary school students have become a source of concerns to all stakeholders. Agriculturebeing one of the key sectors of the Nigerian economy provides the basic needs of people particularly food.
