40+ studies cite that learning and playing Chess develops mental alertness, improves concentration, develops logical thinking, strengthens reading and math abilities, and promotes imagination and creativity. This is a Powerpoint which will teach the basics of Chess, complete with jingles to be learned about every piece. The six original jingles are written to sing with familiar tunes. This fits the classical method of teaching as well as teaches an all-time "classic" game. Once a student has learned to play Chess, they have a skill for life.
