Environmental Education has as one of its aspects the Education in Soils, which has the fundamental role of raising and consolidating awareness on this resource. Therefore, based on the assumption that the task of soil education is not always easy, and since it is composed of a highly complex content, the implementation of teaching materials is fundamental as one of the tools to stimulate in students the importance of this knowledge and make them more aware of the need to review and re-establish the values ​​and attitudes attributed to this resource. In this way, this paper aims to evaluate the efficiency of didactic materials presented at the Earth Science Workshop by PET Solos, through the Agronomy (AGR) and Geography Degree (GL) students of the State University of Santa Cruz - UESC. To obtain the data, a questionnaire was developed and applied to a sample of 18 students in Geography Teaching major and 12 students in Agronomy major, who participated in the Earth Science Workshop, presented by the PET Solos students. This workshop was divided into the following thematic axes: Origin of the Earth, Petrology (rocks), Formation of the Soil and Use and Conservation of Soil. Among the GL and AGR students, 94% and 83%, respectively, stated that the way the contents were approached in the workshop allowed them to understand the sequencing of the subjects covered in Earth Science. Among these same students, 100% stated that the didactic materials made it possible to understand the contents covered in each of the thematic axes. The models are one of the most cited materials: mentioned by 37% of the students in GL and 44% of those of AGR. According to reports of GL students, 37.5% agreed that didactic materials such as Earth globe, model of tectonic plates, experiments of convection current and volcanic eruption were the ones that most aided in understanding the thematic axis Origin of the Earth. Meanwhile, 43.4% of AGR students stated that mineral samples, rocks and weathering experiments contributed the most to understanding the thematic axis Petrology (rocks). In summary, it was possible to understand that the use of didactic materials in the Earth Science Workshop, contributed to the understanding of soil contents to students of Geography and Agronomy Degrees.
