TALES is an educational path aimed at primary school. Through graphic constructions obtained with a ruler, the class explores increasingly richer structures that become familiar with some notions and skills of geometry and arithmetic. The students encounter incident lines, parallel and perpendicular, observe regularities in the four operations, classify polygons, and express themselves on an artistic side. TALES can also provide first intuitive ideas on conics, perspective, the Cartesian plane, and Thales' theorem.

Various activities are proposed below, which we suggest to carry out in order: For each activity, there are indicated the places where it takes place, the necessary materials, the time and the goals. Also, it's available an online game that can complement the activities and become the focus of the last of these.
