About This Activity

Chess is an old game that can be learned by young children. Waging a war on an 8 x 8 grid can be fun and carry many benefits for learning and development. Chess players learn to use higher-order thinking skills, analyze actions and consequences, and visualize future problems. Students gain insight into the nature of competition and strengthen patience, perseverance, and grit. Students in the course will learn basic rules and strategies for playing and completing chess games. Instructor: Dr. Barry Shealy, Assistant Headmaster Location: FPD Media Center
