Description

This activity is closed to further registration.

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.


Beginning/Intermediate: Chess rules and basic tactics are reviewed. Students then delve deeper into more advanced tactics, short and long range strategies, and preparation for tournament play.
