Part of the research in Science Education has relied significantly on the ideas of Freire and Vygotsky to set new curriculum proposals. We highlight the proposals of a Freirean Thematic Approach and Study Situation, respectively by the ideas of Freire and Vygotsky. The objective of this study is to analyze the process of developing the proposals in the classroom, where Freirean Thematic Approach is based on Pedagogical Moments, and the Study Situation also has certain steps. It signals that there is complementarity between the proposals in the steps of the Study Situation - Problematization, First Establishment, Function of the Elaboration and Conceptual Understanding - which shape the process of conceptual meaning, contribute in the context of the Pedagogical Moments, since the Organization of Knowledge can be increased by following the steps of the conceptual significance addressed by the Study Situation.
