Liana Gonçalves Pontes Sodré About the author

This work aims to describe the indications of a sample of 23 children (from 4 to 6 years old), from a settlement of MST, to an infantile education, that is in the planning phase, through drawings and explanations/descriptions. The data indicate: the interest for external environment and nature; suggestions of entertainment and fun elements and pedagogic activities or materials. It is necessary to emphasize the indication of building materials, mainly windows that are preoccupation justified by the precarious conditions of survival, because the families live for 8 years in cottages of canvas. The results indicate the children are able informants in regard to the educational reality they will attend to.
