This work aims to present new activities for teaching trigonometry in Elementary Education. The idea is to show how to teach the main trigonometric relations through exercises that guide students, gradually, to conclusions of these trigonometry relations. The suggested activities make use of “GeoGebra ”software, a feature that enables the construction of trigonometric circles that facilitate the understanding by students. This paper presents not only the sine relations, cosine and tangent for acute angles, as it is usually proposed by textbooks 9th year of elementary school, but also relationships with secant, cosecant and cotangent, and it is not limited to acute angles and the study of right triangles, this leaving, the student more prepared for the challenges of high school and to their professional life.
