KIT DIDÁTICO ViVa:  VIVENDO NAS VÁRZEAS DO ALTO SOLIMÕES.
Rating

O kit didático ViVa - Vivendo nas Várzeas do Alto Solimões está organizado sob a forma de sequência didática e tem como objetivo facilitar a aprendizagem reflexiva e crítica dos discentes no que tange ao cotidiano de agricultores familiares, que vivem em ambientes de várzea. O material baseia-se nas concepções epistemológicas e pedagógicas defendidas por Edgar Morin e Paulo Freire, que primam pela contextualização do conhecimento, logo esse material didático foi construído a partir do cotidiano dos agroecossistemas familiares de várzea do Alto Solimões. No entanto, o mesmo pode ser utilizado por professores de outras regiões que desejam construir com seus discentes novos saberes, ou como modelo de replicação teórica-metodológica para confecção de novos materiais, contextualizados às características de cada lugar. O kit didático ViVa é composto por: a) Este Guia de Orientações ao professor; b) Uma Cartilha; c) Um Jogo de Tabuleiro com instruções; e d) Um CD com os itens acima disponíveis em mídia. O kit didático foi formulado para se trabalhar a temática “Gestão de Agroecossistemas Familiares” em sala de aula, no entanto, por ser a Agricultura Familiar um tema transversal, o kit pode ser trabalhado de forma inter e transdisciplinar por professores de distintas áreas de formação. A cartilha apresenta em seu arcabouço conteúdos, como: Agroecossistemas Familiares; Várzeas; Pulso das Águas/Ciclo Hidrológico; Cultivos Agrícolas; Extrativismo Vegetal; Extrativismo Animal; Criação Animal; Instrumentos, Organização, Processos e Estratégias de Trabalho; Unidades de medida locais; Comercialização Agrícola; e Conservação. A cartilha faz uso de ilustrações pertinentes aos conteúdos abordados, que foram feitas a partir de fotografias dos agroecossistemas, permitindo uma aproximação maior entre teoria e prática. Quanto ao jogo didático, ele apresenta em seu tabuleiro as cinco principais atividades agrícolas realizadas nos agroecossistemas de várzea do Alto Solimões, bem como a influência do pulso das águas ou ciclo hidrológico na dinâmica de trabalho dos agricultores familiares. Além disso, o jogo também estabelece a possibilidade de eventos bons ou ruins aos jogadores, correlacionando esses eventos aos que acontecem nos agroecossistemas de várzea.
