Abstract Resume

Background: According to Piaget, the development of moral judgment occurs in relationships with other individuals in a set of rules. From this perspective, the stories, the
"make-believe" and fairy tales are strategies that allow the development of symbolic reasoning and help the child make sense in your life through its identification with the plot, the characters and
their attitudes. Within the pedagogical proposal of Gustavo Borges Methodology (GBM), teaching of aquatic skills takes place through activities that stimulate children's imagination, promotes
integration and foster the creation of emotional bonds. Between the months April and June 2015, was held the thematic project (commercially called campaign) "Discovering the 7 seas", in which nine
virtual values were worked out, represented by trading cards, stamps, coins and tazos conquered by the child as she played activities and meet established rules. The aim of this study was to evaluate
children comprehension about these virtuous values.

Methods: The counsel of the MGB contacted the coordinators of gyms that had long accreditation and greater adherence to the quarterly campaigns. The academies who agreed to
participate, the recruitment of participants was through explaining the research procedures and verbal invitation to parents of students with higher school attendance. Parents who authorized the
participation of their (s) child (ren) in the research signed the consent form in two ways. The final sample of this study was 277 children aged between 4 and 8 years old, in various regions of
Brazil. After the data collection, all academies sent a duplicate of TCLEs for the MGB office in São Paulo via mail. The instruments used in this research were: a) a tale adaptation "The Frog Prince"
authored by the Brothers Grimm; b) a questionnaire specifically designed for this research, based on Piaget's theory of the development of the notion of moral and study Ferraz (1997) on the
development of the concept of rules in the child. The questionnaire contains four closed and two open questions, which include all moral values developed during the campaign seven seas. In this paper,
we present the results related to question number 3, related to the development of value "disposition" (If the princess was her best friend and you were very tired (a), after a full day full of
activities, you would do if she asked you to help her find the ball? ").

Results: Participated 277 children of both sexes, with the following distribution by age: 4 years = 32; 5 years = 71; 6 years = 62; 7 years = 58; 8 years = 53. The responses to the
question analyzed indicate that in all age groups, children were willing to help the princess, giving preference to teamwork (4 years = 81.25%; 5y = 63.38%; 6 y = 66.67; 7 y = 68.97; 8 y = 64.15%). In
addition to the value of "available", you can check the behavior of "companionship". The percentage of children who help lonely princess came second (4y=9,38; 5y=28,17; 6y= 28,57; 7y =	29,31;
8y=33,96). The results of this study suggest that it is possible to associate  swimming classes to development of important moral values for a harmonious social life.
