The 13th Why don't we try a new Crossword

Hello again from Phase I

Personally I don't feel any different, but fortunately I am OK and so my family is so all I want now is that all of you are OK too

Some participants have told me that you have a lot of homework and you can't participate very often in the workshop馃槶

Well you know Homework first and then CHESS but I will try to do easy, quick and exciting activities.
CHALLENGE #1
Today we are going to practice some English. I proposed a similar activity more than a year ago but this time it is a traditional CROSSWORD 

Here you are the definitions:

ACROSS:

3.- She is the lady, but she is powerful

5.- A big elephant turned into a priest
6.- A heavy and powerful castle.

DOWN:

1.- Humble and weak little soldier

2.- The battle field
4.- Take care of him or everything ends
7.- It rides a crazy, jumping horse

CHALLENGE #2
Now a challenge for Chess players, why don't try to solve a CHECKMATE in this diagram:
White moves and wins
HINT: a pawn can be very useful many many times

You can participate in both activities or just one, it is your option but remember I love to know your comments, opinions suggestions...


See you soon with the last one and a big final SURPRISE 馃槝

The 12th Can you see the light at the end of the tunnel?

Hello everyone, we can go for a walk, and little by little things are a bit better.

Here we are again with a new challenge.

I dare you are not able to do it hahahahaha (evil voice and laughs)

Just kidding

I propose a game using Chess but anyone (even if you don't know any of Chess) can try to solve it.

This occasion I propose you something new, you send me you answers or mistakes or tries, and I send you back a HINT to solve the CHESSOKU: Well, actually is a mis between SUDOKU and CHESS. Two very drizzling games for our minds.

Download HERE or continue reading:


The idea is to answer me with the solutions (there are more than one) and mistakes and questions.
I will answer you back with the correction and a HINT to solve the problem.

See you soon and take care馃槏

The 11th During the Enclosure

Hi everybody
This is our wish from all our friends and collaborators at the Explora Project:

This has been a completely mess but we're stronger enough to get along with it


In this Activity we were thinking about saying you see you after easter holidays but... sadly we don't know what's going to happen.

In the meanwhile I am going to suggest you a wide range of activities and some learning and entertainment.

First of all my good friend Eva S谩nchez saw my story about the "Kiss of Death" (Remember Activity 8th) and she made another version. I liked it a lot, you will tell me whats do you think. (It is in Spanish, Eva draws like an angel but she doesn't speak English)馃槣



More things, a teacher from Logro帽o (Agustinas) posted a map of all the activities in Explora with its map, thank you Julen Vazquez (press here) to see it.

And the Challenges for these weeks are:

Challenge #1 Have you seen the story, the previous one in English has been created for explaining a Checkmate very common but my friend Eva... This challenge has been inspired by my good friend Profesora Feli:
Change the story
All we live in a very strange situation, the story was a little sad so... Why don't you write something, English or Spanish to change the story, or the situation.
Be creative
And send it to me, the best will be posted on the blog and I'll ask Eva if she is inspired to draw something magic, as she usually does (I cannot promise anything but I'll try)

Challenge #2 I don't forget that this is about Chess, I do love Chess and I know you too so there you are a couple of diagrams to solve.
 In this diagram you have to Checkmate in just one move playing with White pieces
In this diagram you have to Checkmate in one move with White pieces.
Be careful because there is ONLY ONE solution.

And that's all for now remember to write me (much better by email) because that naughty COVID_19 doesn't let me to have easy access to the mobile.
