Card game bridges youth to skills
Thursday, October 10, 2019
Opportunity exists for youth to develop their math skills, their problem-solving skills, and their social skills. The means for these desirable outcomes isn’t magic, it’s bridge.
Bridge is an excellent tool to develop critical thinking and inferential reasoning, plus it gives the youth a lifetime recreational skill. Bridge, sometimes known as contract bridge, is a trick-taking card game played by four players who form two partnerships.
The game consists of two phases: bidding and play, both of which challenge teamwork, memory and wits. And it's fun!
If they take lessons, youth learn the strategies and the processing step by step. Mastering such skills is a great accomplishment that promotes self-confidence.
Free youth bridge classes, taught by Greenville Youth Bridge, will begin Oct. 20 and continue on subsequent Sundays at Sheppard Memorial Library, from 2-4 p.m. Please join us.
