Explain to your students how pawns can move in chess. The pawn can move along the file, only forward, and for only one square at a time. However, the first move a pawn can make is restricted to just one or two squares forward. In this worksheet, ask your child to put an X to show the correct move for each pawn. At the end of the exercise, your child should be more skilled at moving pawns.
The pawns are the first line of attack in a game of chess. Also, they are the most pieces assigned to each player. Pawns cannot jump over other pieces. Also, if there is any piece in the pawn’s way, the pawn will be unable to move and will be blocked as long as that piece stays there. In this worksheet, ask your child to put an X to show all the moves the pawns whose paths are not blocked can make.
If your child has a bit of experience with the rules guiding chess playing, they would know that pawns are one of the chess pieces that have very limited moves open to them. However, pawns can still capture enemy pieces in front of them on the diagonal. In this worksheet, ask your child to circle all the places that the pawns can capture in one move.
