Many subjects are seen, often in a ludic point of view, in order for the pupils to acquire very different knowledge
History and geography, Astronomy, Physics, Technology, Mathematics, Oral and written language, ICT, Plastic arts

The fact that the primary school pupils have only a slight mathematical knowledge seems to be a problem, but it is possible to discover these notions in a different way, more concrete, with paper, templates, paper rulers, graduated circles, and strings: the pupils do not have to prove the properties of a figure, but they simply have to check them and see what they can do with. Some children with school problems discover through these activities the opportunity to show their inventiveness, their resourcefulness, skillfulness, as well as their sense of mutual aid: these qualities, acknowledged by their peers, will give them more self-confidence and a desire to continue with other fields. A pedagogical document (120 pages) is provided by “La Main à la Pâte » in 5 languages, and downloadable from the Twinspace. This year the 2 greek schools from Athens and Ioannina involved 8 teachers to work on interdisciplinarity
