Product Description
If you run a Chess Club, Chess Team, or have Chess Sets available for students to play, this pack is for you!
The files contain 12 mini-games and variants (alternate versions of chess with slightly different rules) that will help your students:
*Learn the game and how the pieces move;
*Develop skills and strategy, and reinforce concepts;
*Provide engaging alternatives to a typical Chess game, including fast-paced competitions and team collaborative challenges.

You will receive a full color PDF file and an editable PPTX file (for PowerPoint or Google Slides). Each page will have the mini-game's title, a visual, the end goal, and some rules in kid-friendly language. The PPTX file also has (in the speaker notes) a longer description of each game, with pro-tips for implementing, supporting, and further modifying and adapting the games.

Great options include:
*Share the whole pack with students;
*Break the slides into individual games, shared one at a time (per meeting);
*Print a booklet or folder full of "Alternate" options to typical Chess games that players can choose from;
*Present a new challenge in every week's Chess Club meeting.

For questions or a direct link to copy the Google Slides version (where it was created), make your purchase and send me an email! Enjoy!
