Flash cards with 20 unique designs and 40 question and answer sets that cover many of the most common U.S. Chess Federation tournament rules.
The coach gets up in front of the class and asks one question at a time using the cards. The first child to give the correct answer gets that card to color. No one is allowed to win a second card until all of the other children have won at least one card first. Also, no one is allowed to start coloring until the coach is finished asking the questions. After everyone has at least one card and all questions have been asked, the children can begin coloring. They’re told that the best looking card, (judged by someone other than the coach, if possible) will win a prize. (This coloring time also allows the coach to get a break from teaching.)
