Knowing how to properly note down captures during a game of chess is as essential as knowing how to move the chess pieces; use this worksheet to let your students understand this. To write down a capture, write the short name of the piece that made the capture, its start square, and the square on which it captures and put an X between the names of squares. For example, a notation of Rd2Xd4 means that a rook moved squares d2 to d4 and made a capture. For captures made by a pawn, a short name is not needed.
