This study attempted to find the degree of availability of teaching aids in the resource rooms and the extent to which teachers use them in Irbid Governorate. To achieve the objectives of the study, the researcher used a checklist to determine the availability or non-availability of teaching aids, and a questionnaire to determine the degree of use of these teaching aids. The study sample consisted of (230) male and female teachers. The study concluded that the following devices were largely available: the recorder, the school radio unit, the radio, the television, the computer, a printer, and a data show device. The following educational materials: blackboard, chalk, book, eraser, pencils, ruler, cardboard, and teacher's guide were widely available. The degree of use of the book, the blackboard, the eraser, the pencils, the chalk, and the ruler came to the highest degree. However, the use of the computer data shows the device had the lowest degree.
