In the mini story book titled My Friend, the two animal friends enjoy playing checkers together. This is a great opportunity to make a connection between the events in the story and checkerboard play that challenges students to use spatial reasoning and computational thinking. There’s no need to teach students the rules of checkers to provide the benefits of checkerboard play. Simply using a checkerboard as a play surface will provide a provocation for learning.
