Educational means are of great importance in the success of the teaching and learning process, as they are an influential and effective tool in the educational community. They are also considered part of the approved curriculum system. Educational means are not only means of entertainment and amusement, but rather were developed to consolidate ideas, communicate facts, and bring meanings and ideas closer to students. These methods must be appropriate to the subject matter and the age group of the students, to achieve the goals set for each activity.
