Class Materials and Work books
Thursday, 13 August 2015 17:26
We have been assembling a set of royalty-free materials that can be used for teaching chess in class (and pre-school).
These materials now form an almost complete range for any age.
We have now reorganized the access to them to make it much easier for you to find the material and to download it.
There are also other support materials, especially the FIDE Student Magazine.
Still more material of interest can be found within this Teaching Materials section, including the option to download some of this material chapter by chapter or section by section, which may be especially useful for those of you with slow internet connections.
The following items all bear the stamp of approval of the FIDE CiS Commission: Approved by the World Chess Federation's Chess in Schools Commission.
