Video – Gifts and Talents (Bodily/Kinesthetic)
Sports, Dance, Gymnastics (Bodily/Kinesthetic Intelligence): Gifts reflected in highly developed bodily movements as in athletics, dance, martial arts, performing surgery, and through skillful hand-eye coordination. Such students excel at things like sports, dance, gymnastics, martial arts, boxing, and working with their hands. They tend to have excellent body control and hand-eye coordination; they also enjoy a broad range of physical activities as well as activities in which they can build things.
