About This Activity

Description

Gr.K-5. Chess is a game that once you learn how to play, you will enjoy it forever. The strategy and planning skills students learn in chess help them in decision-making situations in school and throughout their whole life!

Students learn chess history, etiquette, the playing board, its chessmen, how the pieces move, value of the pieces, common opening moves, tactics, endgame strategies and how to checkmate their opponent. Chess has been shown to improve academic skills, assist in critical thinking, focusing and long-term planning, teach good sportsmanship, enhance social skills and self-esteem.


Intermediate/Advanced: Experienced students explore tactical play, short and long-term planning, mating patterns, and game analysis. Students learn tournament play using USCF rules.
