Checkmating your opponent's king is the goal of every chess game. Chess is a fantastic way for your children to grow their problem-solving and critical thinking skills, and especially if they have a fun time winning! With this PDF worksheet, they'll get practice working on whether or not the kings can be checkmated in the next move, and then they'll get to use the sample board to draw a line and make the checkmate move themselves. Who doesn't love being a winner?!

Required skills:
To resolve this worksheet, students should be able to identify the current positions of their own and their opponent's chess pieces. They need to determine whether or not the king is in checkmate and then come up with a strategy to make the checkmate move themselves.
