Out of a population 121 SS lll Geography students, 20 were selected as the sample of students while all the teachers were used for the study. The researcher distributed and collected back the questionnaire after a period of two weeks. The 20 students were tested after two weeks intervention programme. The data created were analysed using simple percentage and students t- test statistics. The analysis indicates that, the interaction of students with the learning environment does not significantly affect there performance in geography. Large class size, insufficient teaching period, insufficient teaching materials and unavailability ol laboratory were challenges encountered by teachers in making a conducive classroom. It was recommended that a well-equipped Geography laboratory is to be provided in all schools.
