Many studies have marked that the different conceptions of the body throughout the history have been labeled by the cultural, social, educational, political and ideational factors of each era. Body’s cultures have also been influenced from the ludic elements, we refer fundamentally to the verbal tradition games which have been adapted to the prevailing social circumstances and they have conditioned the body’s conception. In this article we analyze the repercussion of the ludic-cultural aspects and we also accomplish some reflections on what this has supposed (and suppose) in relation with the education of the children and girls who live in our current society.

Keywords: Body, Culture, Education, Game.
