Chess develops critical thinking skills, concentration skills, and decision-making skills — all of which can help you in other areas of your life. Besides the rules of the game, some of the things we are learning about chess include:
- History of the game
- Sportsmanship and etiquette
- Strategy for opening, middle and end game
- How to teach someone else to play
We are currently playing a chess tournament to practice both our strategy and our scorekeeping.
