The opening-up of pathways in the minds of the “little-grandmasters-in-training”!

One can compare the brain of a beginner or a pre-schooler to the Brazilian Amazon jungle or the Jungle of Borneo – to make the jungles accessible for adventurers more pathways must be open up!

The same as with the brain – as more pathways open up the more capable the brain of the chess adventurer becomes to learn new chess concepts such as touch-move, check, checkmate, promotion, castling, j’adoube (adjusting) en passant (in passing), notation and illegal move.

PS: Bobby Fischer, the 1972 world chess champion, started playing chess at the age of 6 and became one of the greatest grandmasters ever!

As chess facilitator you can use the following quizzes to “open up more pathways” in the minds of the “little-grandmasters-in-training”!
