THE IMMUNOLOGICAL SYSTEM FOR BASIC EDUCATION: CONSTRUCTION OF A GAME FOR GIFTED STUDENTS
Keywords:biology teaching, immune system, giftedness, active methodologies
The pandemic caused by the new coronavirus, SARS-coV-2, has paralyzed the world, highlighting the importance of knowledge related to immunity that should be present in people's daily lives since basic education. The school space must be a place of inclusion and among all the publics served, students with gifted behavior are pointed out. The work took place in a workshop held at the VIII Summer Course (2020), for gifted students from the Development and Innovation in Science Teaching group - UFF (DIECI-UFF). The subject dealt with the Immune System and the proposals for the construction of pedagogical tools for future learning. The participating students were encouraged to solve clinical case studies, to participate in a game about the Immune System and challenged to produce a teaching material to be used by Science and Biology teachers. From the demands found, as well as the suggestions brought by the gifted, it became possible to improve the prototype of the board game. It was concluded that gifted students, when challenged, tend to concentrate and get involved with the proposed task, which resulted in the satisfactory production of materials that can be used by other students in elementary schools.
