The movie "A Bug's Life" was closely watched and were noted morphological, biological and behavioral aspects addressed in the work. The use of films in school environment is becoming increasingly popular, either by eye-catching or even facilitate teaching. Today we have a large catalog of films related to science communication and pop culture. Movi...
Cartoons have always delighted adults and children alike. The thousands of possibilities that the drawings bring in their narratives stir everyone's imagination, especially children's. In addition to stimulating children's imagination, cartoons can help teachers in teaching science, especially in teaching Zoology. In this way, the present work reviewed the different approaches that have been used by educators and scholars on the use of drawings as a pedagogical tool. In this sense, academic works published between 2009 and 2018 were inventoried in the Google Scholar search engine, using the keywords: cartoons; animals; zoology; science teaching; cultural pedagogy. Only articles within this category that presented applications of the use of drawings/animated characters in Zoology teaching were analyzed. A total of 69 works were analyzed, most of which were published in annals of events. Through this meta-analysis, it can be assessed that cartoons have been used in the teaching and dissemination of Zoology in four aspects: the first, where the teacher appropriates the characters to build narratives in classes or events; the second that seeks to use such characters as a way to demystify popular concepts or even introduced by works of fiction; the third, which seeks to use such characters in the construction of zoological and ecological concepts in classes; the fourth and last, in the dissemination of endangered or little-known species, collaborating for the conservation of these as well as their respective environments. Therefore, the use of cartoons in teaching Zoology, although not a popular tool, has been gaining ground and has great potential to be a fundamental resource for a more meaningful learning of Zoology.
