Abstract: The goal of the present study was to investigate the children's social representation about old people and aging. The social representation theory by Serge Moscovici was used as theoretical support. Drawing, semi-structured interviews and oriented children play were employed to investigate 31 children, 11 aged between eight and ten years old and 20 between five and six years old. The results indicated a diversified social representation about old people, in which themes like physical characteristics, grandparents, illness, death, physical disabilities, employment, activities and heterogeneity are present. The children regarded aging as the passage of time, a process to which everyone is subjected.
