It is essential that these schools consider actions that are geared at passing a different logic, suitable for each time and each place.

This is an experience report about the construction of educational resources made by members of the Liga Acadêmica de Educação em Sáude (LAEDS) [Health Education Academic League] in Universidade Estadual de Ciência da Saúde de Alagoas (Alagoas State University of Health Sciences), they are: Puppets, puzzle, memory games and coloring books. Where an active methodology was applied and tried to explore the five senses and the child, parent and adult ego states. It can be noticed that through the educational resources the students kept their interest in the workshop, showing interest and participation so that makes learning possible and made their interaction with the staff easier. The construction of educational resource occurred harmonically, the members were divided into 4 groups, where each individual group was assigned to produce a resource, then all the class was put together and each group shared to each other their resource, thus the best way to provide resources for students was subsequently discussed. The education in health must happen at a level that transforms the target audience’s behavior, and by building these educational resources and the message given to students, the aim was to bring in a simple manner the prevention of health, so the use of educational resources facilitated the understanding and apprenticeship of students, therefore, the objective of resource construction was reached.
