About this template

This template brings the beloved game of checkers to your classroom, offering students a chance to engage in a timeless battle of wits and tactics.

How to play

Ensure everyone understands the objectives of the game and how to move the checkers pieces. Invite students to take turns challenging the teacher to a game of checkers, or they can play each other in teams or individually on their own devices.

With the checkers pieces in play, players take turns moving their pieces diagonally across the board. Encourage students to think strategically and plan their moves carefully to outmaneuver their opponent. Use the built-in scoreboard to track wins for both teams or players.
