ABSTRACT
Encouragements to read and write about several areas of knowledge are gaining the attention of education researchers and teachers. Writing production helps students with their own identities and allows them to stand for themselves when the teacher intends the situation. The animals have been chosen as the subject either for being part of the content provided by the school's curriculum, as for being able to produce the most sorted range of feelings on us such as admiration, fear, care and disgust. We have worked with students of the 6th grade, in the Primary School Hall "Dilma Lucia dos Santos" in Florianopolis, in the construction of animal's stories in science and Portuguese classes. The intention was to work with a narrative genre of story writing taking an animal that could be found in the region and putting it in a context. Given the variety of themes covered in these stories, it has been observed some aspects of the human relationship with other animals, such as relations of utilitarianism, animal care and friendship. It was also possible to rescue some aspects of the students’ lives and provide free use of imagination to create different views of animal life and to think about it. Thus, it permitted a dialogue about different experiences.
