Following are analyzed two categories of images, namely, an atlas of the human body and physical activity that has as its main body and females. Following are analyzed two categories of images, namely, of atlas of the human body and physical activity that has the male and female body as it main element.

The final considerations point to a questioning of the textbook as a tool for concept formation and schooled subjectivities.
