Akanbi (1988), observes that the
unique place of educational facilities has traditionally been grossly
misunderstood and correspondingly neglected. 
Therefore, this research work will deal with educational facilities
available in teaching and learning process and how the teacher can make
effective use of them to achieve educational objective.
