According to elearningk12 and ChampionshipChess.net, “chess is a learning tool that just happens to be a game. Studies conducted over the last 30 years show that students’ IQs increase and test scores improve after less than a year of systematic chess study”.

“Chess is fun and motivational, turning problem-solving into a game.  It is also a thinking game, encouraging students to use patterns and logical deductive reasoning to solve problems.  Chess develops and improves memory and concentration as well as the capacity to predict consequences”.

“If you’d like brush up on the rules or to teach your kids how to play chess, visit www.ChessKids.com for a kid-friendly introduction to the game and a series of lessons on game play and strategy”.

Fun learning is forever learning!
