1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Basic science is a subject dealing with fundamental constituent of the universe, the force they exact on one another and the result produced by these forces. Aiyelabagan (2003), writes that basic science is derived from Greek term meaning nature. Therefore Basic science should be a science dedicated to the study of matter in relation to energy. Abdullahi (1982), defines basic science as the study of the relationship between matter and energy.
The wrong notion of some people about the abstractness of basic science should be corrected. Basic sciences is not abstract if taught with the right materials and method. Our environment is rich with materials to be used if properly harmness. It is great important to note that apart from physical and mental readiness and interest of the pupils on different subjects, the academic standard of any school is likely to be contingent upon instructional materials.
One major purpose of improvisation is to allow pupils to take part in the process. According to Adediran (2006), when learners participate in improvisation of instructional materials they are exposed to creativity, innovation and curiosity all of which are fundamental to teaching and learning of science. Today, there has been much concern about the apparent falling standard of education mostly at the primary school level. There is also mutual laying of blame the parent, blaming pupils for not being interested for taking their studies serious. Parents are also blamed for their inability to provide the pupils with the necessary tools to aids learning, and the government for not providing schools with instructional materials that will eventually foster efficiency in teaching and learning situation.
Many science teachers do not see improvisation as anything to talk about or labour for. This is simply because equipment are readily available in the market for teaching and learning. Improvisation is very important to teaching and learning of science. Roding top fatubarin (2001), improvisation in science teaching is described as an important issue in science education which has attracted a lot of contribution from science teachers. Science has been regarded as the bedrock of modern day technological breakthrough is built. Nowadays, countries all over the world, especially the developing ones like Nigeria, are striving hard to develop technologically and scientifically, science the world is turning scientific and proper functioning of lives depend greatly on science.
