Catur

Playing American Catur opens up the children’s Teamwork skills that can be likened to two compounds, almost essential to modern life. It’s the glue which keeps a team together, a bond which promotes strength, unity, reliability and support. This game helps Teach the Children the importance of Teamwork that it is the oil that makes the teamwork. It can enable smoother movement towards targets, can prolong forward momentum, and can help teams to overcome obstacles as they learn to work together.
