The aim of this paper was to analyze the results obtained in recent studies that used the Game-Based Learning (GBL) method in Early Childhood Education and the first cycle of Primary Education for theacquisition of knowledge. For this purpose, a narrative review was carried out in the Web of Science and Scopusdatabases. Articles published between January 2012 and January 2022. The terms “active methodologies”,“academic performance” and “children” were used synonymously. The papers included in the review show theimportance of the use of play in the Early Childhood Education stage (0-6 years of age). The results show thatschoolchildren who attend sessions in which the contents are included through games and involve movement,improve their academic performance. The interventions analyzed used mainly content in the areas of secondlanguage, language and mathematics. Based on these results, we present a didactic application, a session witha total duration of 45-50 minutes. It is aimed at students in the second cycle of pre-school education and canbe easily adapted to other educational levels. In conclusion, it is suggested to promote this type of motivatingactivities in the classroom and the promotion of active methodologies in the first years of schooling, giving amajor role to play and movement.
