Desmoines students learn cribbage...

From the Desmoines Register:

"Strategy, not luck, is the name of the game during cribbage play at Cowles Montessori School on Tuesday afternoons.

Cowles teacher Heather Anderson organized the Cribbage Club for third- through sixth-grade students and taught them how to play.
