Chess: Chess Army

Students continue to explore the playing pieces on the chessboard as well as the chess clock. They see that a chess clock has two faces and buttons on top and learn why chess players use a clock.  The chess clock ensures that each player get the same amount of time to think about the moves they want to make.

In the previous video, students learned about the King, Queen and Pawns. In this video, the chess teacher explains the other pieces.  Students learn that each army also has two Bishops, two Knights and two Rooks. The video explains how each piece moves. Bishops can move diagonally any number of squares. Knights move in an L-shaped pattern and can jump over pieces, and Rooks can move in a straight line any number of spaces.

The next video in the series explains more about the chess board and students may be surprised to learn that each of the sixty-four squares on the board has a name!

Such a great app!
This was a really fun way to get my kids to practice their math. I usually struggle to get them into it and Kids Academy makes it easy.

Great for kids
Our 7 years old daughter loves reading activities and every off-line game Kids Academy offers. This is a very good app, I highly recommend it!
Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
Great app
Wow! This app is really great. For the first time my kids actually enjoy learning math and reading. The games on Kids Academy are educational and really fun.
