This work aims to incite the researcher inside students, encouraging them to utilize the History of Mathematics as a tool in order to improve the learning process. The theme considered in this research was presented in classroom, and it was elaborated accordingly to São Paulo Faz Escola program. The History of Mathematics was chosen to be used in order to the students create the concepts to be used, and understand the need of the transition to its moment and its importance to present days. A survey on Measurement Units was conducted, after this procedure, the survey data were socialized, then it was suggested that they measured objects and spaces at school and compared the results. At the end, there was a debate about data obtained during the activity and the students' knowledge and understanding about the topic was remarkable. The final debate was enriching for both the students and me as a teacher, because I could see the interaction and commitment to the content. I conclude that this activity responded to its objectives.
