O Museu da Geodiversidade possui uma equipe composta por museólogos, geólogos e educadores (historiadores, pedagogos e licenciados em Letras), que idealizam, junto com um grupo de bolsistas de diferentes áreas, ações educativas que buscam divulgar as Geociências, despertando o interesse da sociedade sobre o tema e, com isso, promovendo o debate acerca de questões universais que afetam a humanidade e o planeta como um todo.
Metodologicamente, todas as atividades são geridas com base na Teoria Cognitiva, também conhecida como Teoria dos Estágios, de Jean Piaget, contemplando os Períodos Pré-Operatório (2 a 7 anos), das Operações Concretas (7 a 11 anos) e das Operações Formais (12 anos em diante), com pequenas variações, já que o Núcleo GeoEducAtivo do MGeo elabora suas ações para crianças a partir de 5 anos.
As ações educativas são divididas entre visitas mediadas, oficinas e jogos educativos. Para conhecer melhor cada uma delas, clique nos links abaixo:
Oficina Conhecendo os fósseis
Oficina Colorindo e aprendendo
Oficina Nas pistas dos vulcões
Jogo Memórias do planeta

- EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES
The Museum of Geodiversity has a team composed of museologists, geologists and educators (historians, pedagogues and graduates in Literature), who idealize, together with a group of scholars from different areas, educational actions that seek to spread Geosciences, arousing the interest of society on the topic and thereby promoting the debate on universal issues affecting humanity and the planet as a whole.
Methodologically, all activities are managed based on the Cognitive Theory, also known as Stage Theory, by Jean Piaget, covering the Preoperative Periods (2 to 7 years), Concrete Operations (7 to 11 years) and Formal Operations (12 years and over), with slight variations, since the GeoEducative Nucleus of MGeo elaborates its actions for children from 5 years on.
The educational actions are divided between mediated visits, workshops and educational games. To know each one better, click on the links below:
For scheduled groups, MGeo’s GeoEducational Nucleus offers mediated visits, whose objective is to develop expository content together with students, in order to raise questions that lead them to reflect on the theme and to construct new ways of understanding the world and to relate to him.

3D Puzzle: life taking shape.
In this activity, the participants assemble different crocodile skeletons, learning to relate the part to the whole, in order to perceive that the same animal families have different species and genera, according to the place where they live and with the need of adaptation to the their respective environments. In addition, this activity stimulates the participant’s accurate gaze and ability to observe and abstract.
Coloring and learning
In this workshop participants are invited to color scientific illustrations. The intention is that during this playful process, they seize scientific contents present in the drawing itself, being the act of painting more than a bridge for this purpose, also a stimulus to the development of individual artistic tendencies.
On the tracks of volcanoes
In this workshop, from a series of volcanic rocks that are chemically the same but with completely different appearances (texture, weight, color, etc.), the participants discover, with the aid of magnifying glasses and explanatory panels, which phenomena inherent to Planet Earth lead to this diversity.
Memories of the planet
This activity is based on the inherent principle of traditional memory games, in which participants develop memory strategies, establishing relationships between images and their positions on the board. Moreover, in this case, each image is a sign that corresponds to an event or geological and / or paleontological concept.
Investigating the past. The Game of the Seven Mistakes of the Cretaceous
In this activity, the participant must discover the errors existing in the comparison between two almost identical landscapes that represent an ecosystem of 70 million years ago, causing this workshop to require close observation of the paleoenvironment in question.
Geopalavras: the investigator now is you!
In this game, the idea is to use the idea of a word-of-mouth about water, fossil fuels, geology, geodiversity, etc. to bring participants closer to current words and geoscientific concepts.
Domino of mineralogy
In this activity, the domino has pieces in which each end joins the other not by the existence of identical numbers, but by the relation between word and image. In addition, the gabion piece of the game is governed by the degree of hardness of the mineral.
Learning to deal with diversity
Under Law 13.409, enacted at the end of 2016, persons with disabilities were included among the beneficiaries of reserve positions in federal universities and in federal secondary technical high schools. Thus, the UFRJ has been implementing policies that guarantee access, mobility and inclusion of people with disabilities in the university space.
The Museum of Geodiversity (MGEO) of the Institute of Geosciences, in partnership with the Occupational Therapy Course of the Faculty of Medicine, has been addressing the issue of accessibility in cultural environments since the year 2014. Seeking to raise awareness of the academic community and promote attitudinal accessibility, we will offer a practical workshop with the objective of sensitizing teachers, students, employees and other stakeholders to receive, attend and live in a more inclusive society.
An environment without accessibility will be provided for people to experience activities with some kind of disability, thus presenting the reality of people with disabilities, the strategic needs and raising awareness among the general public. Knowing other realities and putting oneself in another’s place expands the reference universe of individuals and helps them to reflect on the issue of accessibility in its multiple aspects.
We need to reduce as far as possible the barriers, especially the attitudinal barriers that exist in our spaces by affirming the human rights of people with disabilities and the need to permanently eradicate prejudice and discrimination from university life.
All of us, technicians, teachers, UFRJ students and the general public will have the opportunity to meet and discuss more about this demand of our society and people with disabilities will have the opportunity of access to information, education, culture, science, leisure or many others – in a pleasant and autonomous way.
Memories of the Solar System
The activity aims at working characteristics of each of the celestial bodies of the Solar System, but in this memory game, the participant will not only associate images, but curiosities about each of these elements.
Children at the Mgeo
The Museum of Geodiversity has a visit script specially designed for the children’s education audience (3 to 5 years). In it, a storytelling is the starting point for a playful visit accompanied by a special mediator.
