Abstract: This study seeks to determine the effects of location of weather station in teaching weather element in senior secondary schools in Kaduna north. The study was restricted to a particular senior secondary school in Kaduna north due to the experimental nature of the research work. three research questions were asked and two hypotheses were formulated and tested by experimentation with a total number of forty (40) (male and female) students offering geography in senior secondary school three (SSSIII). The research was experimental in nature therefore the pre-test, post-test control and experimental group design was employed for the study. Forty (40) students were randomly selected and divided into groups. The experimental groups were taught weather element using a weather station as an instructional aid and the control were taught in the classroom without a weather station. Twenty (20) multiple choice questions for both pre-test and post-test was used to collect data for the study from students while an interview was scheduled to obtain data from teachers. The data for the research were collected and analyzed statistically at 0.05 level of significant using t-test statistics, the data analyzed were used to answer the research questions and hypotheses formulated for the study. The performance of students in experimental group was in upward projection due to the use of weather station as instructional material compare to students taught in the classroom (control group). Government should ensure that weather stations are located in all secondary schools; this will improve the understanding of the dynamic nature of weather and give better understanding of the environment.
