The continuous deteriorating trend of students’ achievement in Biology had given concern to students’ achievement in Biology. The instructional materials used by teachers in teaching Biology in Nigerian secondary schools had also been implicated. In view of the above problems, the present research work was designed to investigate the effects of slides and filmstrips on SS2 students’ achievement in Biology. The researcher adopted a non- equivalent quasi-experimental design. A sample of 360 SS2 students was drawn from the three schools in Enugu East L.G.A. of Enugu state. In each of the schools used, three intact classes were randomly drawn; one intact class was then randomly assigned to the experimental groups I, II and III. The three groups were taught using slides, filmstrips and (conventional for experimental) without instructional materials respectively. A research question and hypothesis guided the study. Relevant data for the study were collected using Biology Achievement Test (BAT). Research questions was answered using mean and standard deviations while hypothesis was tested using Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA). The results revealed that the use of filmstrips in teaching Biology in the secondary schools was found to achieve higher than those taught using slides and conventional. Furthermore, the use of slides was found to be better than the use of conventional method. Some recommendations made based on the findings of the study.
