This paper presents a profile on how teachers in senior secondary schools in Bauchi state Nigeria utilise animated instructional resource (AIR) in the teaching of biology. A structured questionnaire used to generate data on the availability, accessibility and application of the AIR for classroom instruction by teachers. The instrument for data collection was piloted in the three senatorial zones, which include Bauchi, Ningi and Katagum zones. The result indicated low awareness of biology teachers to the existence of AIR in senior secondary schools. Analysis of availability and utilization of animated instructional resource by teachers showed sharp contrast between the affirmative and the null, 3% shows "yes" while 97% was "no", indicating that there is no availability and utilization of AIR in senior secondary school. With regards to teachers' opinion on the need for AIR in schools, the teachers' overwhelmingly indicated great need. However 100% voted in favour of the need for the package. The teachers also indicated willingness to buy AIR if sold, because AIR is found to be very useful in classroom instruction.
