The rationale of this paper has grounds for the model of Scientific – Didactic Principles (S.D.P.) for learning of Geography and History created, published and introduced by García A.L. and Jimenez, J.A. among other forums, in the Fourth Spanish Conference Of Didactics Of Geography (Almagro, Spain, November, 2006). The main idea behind this theory is that Scientific Principles must build the basis of learning in sciences, therefore they also have a didactic nature. In this research we part from some of the most significant movies in History of films, equating them with each one of the Scientific – Didactic Principles we have developed, in order to confer to the teaching of Geography and History a new perspective, and to offer a new, playful and more effective resource of learning inside the classroom, breaking that way with the memorizing tradition around the teaching of these subjects.

Keywords: Scientific – Didactic Principles, Geography, History, Movies, Memorizing Tradition
