Bring Bridge to Your School
Students across North America are learning to play bridge at their school and they are reaping the educational and social rewards!
Bridge is a game full of strategy and tactics. It's part science, part math, part logic, part reason. Bridge embodies cooperation, logic and problem-solving. Bridge is also a partnership game. Trust, communication and patience are the essential attributes of winning at bridge.
Bridge has been shown to improve students’ standardized test scores. In a 2005 study, young bridge players out-scored their non-playing counterparts on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills by 39.31% in Science, 24.22% in Math, and 22.74% in Social Science.
Instruction for bridge also meets your state’s standard learning expectations for subjects such as Mathematics and Language Arts. Visit LearningToGive.org for lesson plans, state standard requirements and handouts for bridge instruction.
