The intention is that the work occurs of integrated form, at the same time where the especificidades of the sources, boardings and approach happened of the different fields of sciences are respected natural human beings and. Definitive CHAINS pertinent contents to the areas of Sciences Natural Human beings and had always been gifts in the composition of the resumes and programs of infantile education. In the majority of the institutions, these contents are related to the preparation of the pupils for the posterior years of its escolaridade, as in the case of the work come back toward the motor development and of habits and attitudes, in which the acquisition of procedures is basic as to copy, to repeat to color previous productions (drawings, exercises etc.). In the work with the referring contents to Natural Sciences, in turn, some institutions limit it the transmission of certain slight knowledge related to the beings livings creature and the human body. Disrespecting the knowledge and the ideas that the pupils already possess, they value the terminology use technique, what it can constitute a not significant formalizao of contents for the pupils. An example of this is the definitions taught deformed descontextualizadas on the diverse animals: ‘ ‘ they are mamferos’ ‘ or ‘ ‘ they are anfbios’ ‘ etc., and the activities to classify animals and plants according to categories defined for zoology and biology.

The possibility of the children is disrespected thus to display its formularizations for later compares them with that science considers. Some practical also if base on activities directed toward a moralizante formation, as in the case of the reinforcement the certainties attitudes related to the health and the hygiene.

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

The sprouting and the fast diffusion of the consumption society if had given to leave of the end of World War II, in 1945. In this period, the United States had reached an extraordinary economic platform what it stimulated the industries to invest in the production of consumption good, making possible, thus, the propagation of a new standard of behavior of the society, American as not only world-wide, that it started to see in the United States the society model that if would like to be part. Thus, the United States that had suffered with the Economic Depression of 1920 and had passed for World War II had arrived at years 50 representing only 6% of the world-wide population, but consuming 1/3 of the products produced in all the Planet. In such way it is that if it perceives that even so if praises the American model of based life in the consumerism, the reality is in agreement Gonalves Port praises in its workmanships, that is, that this is mathematically impossible to be reached, therefore does not have enough resources so that the whole world consummates as they. One sees, then, that this model of society is rank to only stimulate the consumption of the underdeveloped countries that stop arriving at the North American standard they fall in the trap of the consumerism and the discarding, living to work and to consume the industrialized products that enrich each time plus that Country. But in years 60 it is that they start to appear refuting movements that had started to alert the people concerning the contradictions between the said progress and of the risks of the insustentabilidade in the indiscriminate use of the natural resources with sights to take care of the consumption necessities. It is in this period that the idea of finitude of the natural resources is faced by the society. .

Science Says

Monday, May 7th, 2012

There are many issues discussed on this website.  Topics range from dedicating a week to the conservation of polar bears to the history of ants, and how far they have come.  Thereafter, where they are going now and what we as environmentally-conscious individuals, need to understand about ants and their heritage.

As well, there are more psychological discussions on how one can scientifically become happier in their lives (again though, through a scientific approach), as well as a combination of the two – how to make the environment last longer in a very easy way; just making a few (barely noticeable) changes.

The site also has a section on politics, and a directory of endangered species.
