Media has established itself as a strong component of the reality in contemporary society. In this sense, there is a growing interest in the analysis of how media issues influences children's universe. From this perspective, this study aims to investigate and analyze the presence of the media at school by observing the body behavior in children’s movements. An interactive observation at a public children school in Brasilia was methodologically used. As a result, it was found that there is a cultural interaction of media by children in their leisure moments and in their social relationship, which is reflected in symbolic games.
