  • Slide 41 - Chess Basics – The Bishop

  • Slide 51 - Review Each piece has its own unique rules of movement. The knight is the only piece that can “hop” other pieces. The queen is the most powerful. The king is the most valuable.
  • Slide 52 - CHESS FOR KIDS Lesson 4
  • Slide 53 - Lesson Goals Setting up the board. Rules, rules, rules.
  • Slide 54 - Setting Up The Board The board must be oriented so that the square in the right corner facing each player is white. The queen must be on a square of her own color. Follow the diagram below. Player 2 Player 1
  • Slide 55 - Additional Rules - General White (or light color) goes first. You capture another player’s piece by moving into the square that piece occupied. The game ends when there is a checkmate, stalemate, or a draw (more on this later). A player may resign (quit and loose) at any time. A player may propose a draw after his/her turn.
  • Slide 56 - Additional Rules – Promotion A pawn that makes it to the other side of the board may be promoted to any other piece. A queen is nearly always chosen because of its power. Yes, you can have two queens on the board at once. If a piece can be captured, a player may decide not to capture it.
  • Slide 57 - Additional Rules – Touching When a player touches one of his/her own pieces, then he/she must make a legal move with this piece, if possible. When a player touches one of his/her opponents pieces, then he/she must capture this piece if possible. When castling, the king must be the first piece touched. J’adoube – “I adjust”
  • Slide 58 - Additional Rules – En Passant This is a special capture technique for pawns and very rare. It only applies to pawns that move 2 squares on the first move. If the pawn could have been captured on the first square, the other player can capture it only on the next turn.
  • Slide 59 - Additional Rules – En Passant
  • Slide 60 - Additional Rules – Castling The king and rook can move at the same time if the following is true: The king and rook involved haven’t moved. The king is not in check before, during, or after the move. All squares between the rook and king before the castling move are empty. The king moves 2 square towards the rook, and the rook moves over the king to the next square.
  • Slide 61 - Additional Rules – Castling Black cannot castle!
