Chess is a popular and very engaging game and probably stimulates the mind like no other. Apart from playing chess, the chess board inspires you to think of other challenging games that can be played. The grid like pattern on the board gives you opportunities to to do lots of things like move tokens, arrange them, make patterns, count, connect, etc. The black and white squares are visually interesting and can be used to add challenges. So why not try out a few of these games played on a chess board in your next class?
