Abstract

Problem statement: The creativity of teachers in the planning process of their classes for teaching science and biology may be an instigator to promote and stimulate learning. The science should be something that awakens curiosity in students to make learning pleasurable and increase their interest. The aim this research was to develop didactic materials for to help the teaching-learning process in the content of science and biology. Especially, those content about systematic that can not be very exciting and bring some difficulty for the involvement of students. Approach: Inspired in the Atlantic forest, which extends along the Brazilian coast and offers a diverse ecosystem, were created some materials that enable the interaction of teacher with students, which were: "memory of the Atlantic forest", "unmasking the Atlantic forest
