COMMUNITY CLASSROOM: A game of chess improves cognitive research

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) -As local children and their families wait out the coronavirus pandemic, many of them will be looking for something to do.

One teacher in Pender County believes a game of chess is a great way to keep them focused while stimulating their minds.

Ms. Diggs, a West Pender Middle School teacher in Burgaw says research shows a game of chess helps improve and increase a child’s memory and helps with problem solving.

She’s asking for eight games for her classroom on the Donors Choose website.

They cost about $200 and she only needs $60.
