Create your own VERTICAL chess board (magnetic) so that less room is taken up in your class!
This board will generate much activity during inside recess and free time. No more missing pieces or bumping the boards. Use this tool as a handy teaching resource so that all students can see the pieces and moves!
The colorful, transparent films easily give the beginners a visual path of how each chess piece moves around the board.
Critical thinking skills, and math skills are especially easy to target with this fun activity. In addition, students will be developing communication skills, interpersonal skills, reading body language, self discipline and patience. Foresight will grow and develop in the brain's prefrontal cortex! As Ben Franklin stated: foresight, circumspection, caution and learning to not be discouraged can all be goals of learning chess.
