Abstract

Given the significant increase in geohydrological disasters over recent years in Brazil, education for disaster risk reduction (DRRE) has become an important resource in tackling the situation. This paper is aimed at contributing to field of DRRE through an experiment of integration of the theme of geohydrological disasters in formal education at elementary level, discoursing on its conception, execution and evaluation. The methodology, including the content, was conceived based on information collated from federal legislation, environmental education literature and the experience of the authors. The experiment was conducted with students of 10-11 years of age in an elementary public school in the municipality of Miguel Pereira, Rio de Janeiro state (Brazil). The aim was to apply a transversal, interdisciplinary perspective involving teachers from different discipline and the Municipal Department for the Environment and Civil Defence. The experiment was aimed at putting the methodology proposal for participative learning into practice, including the teaching strategy, content, duration time for each class, total course hours, extracurricular activities and teaching materials (booklets, games and mock-ups). The methodology was evaluated and approved by the participants, who expressed that its application was worthy of being continued.
