The study investigated the effects of using discussion supplemented with music and animation on the interest and academic achievement of Home Economics pupils in Primary Schools in Abia State. The study was guided by six specific purposes. Six research questions were developed and answered and six null hypotheses formulated and tested for the study. The design of the study was a Quasi-experimental research design that involved experimental groups and control group. The population of the study comprised of ten thousand and forty five (10,045) Primary five (5) Pupils in all the Government owned Primary schools in Abia State. A sample size of one hundred and twenty (120) which consist of 38 pupils (17 males and 21 females) that was assigned to the experimental group I, 40 pupils (19 males and 22 females) that was assigned to experimental group II and 42 pupils (20 males and 22 females) that was assigned to the control group primary five drawn from the population of Umuahia education zone involving three intact classes using purposive sampling technique. The instrument used for this study was Home Economics Achievement Test (HEAT) and Measure of Home Economics Interest Scale (MHEIS). The instruments were subjected to face and content validation by three experts; two specialists from Home Economics and one from Measurement and Evaluation all from Michael Okpara University of Agriculture Umudike. The reliability of HEAT was determined using Kuder-Richardson 20, which yielded a correlation coefficient of 0.79 while Measure of Home Economics Interest Scale (MHEIS) had a reliability coefficient of 0.78 which was determined using Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation Coefficient (PPMCC) statistic. The researcher and research assistants administered the pre-test and post test to the pupils. The data collected through the administration of the instruments were analyzed using mean and standard deviation to answer research questions and Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) was used to test the null hypotheses at .05 level of significance. The study revealed that Pupils taught with discussion supplemented with music and animation had more interest in Home economics than the pupils taught with lecture method, that there was a significant difference between the mean interest scores of pupils in Home economics when taught with music teaching methods and lecture method. It was also revealed that Music teaching method has relative effect on Pupils achievement in Home Economics, that there was a significant difference between the mean interest scores of pupils in Home economics when taught with animation teaching method and lecture method. Based on the finding, it was recommended among others that Home Economics teachers should make music and animation teaching methods fundamental part of their teaching.
