Howard Gardner first proposed his theory of Multiple Intelligences and the bodily-kinesthetic intelligence in 1983. Unfortunately, almost three decades later, teacher programs still do not train teachers about Bodily-Kinesthetic intelligence in depth; nor do they train teachers how to integrate Bodily-Kinesthetic intelligence into daily learning procedures and classroom environment. Schools focus very little on other factors that contribute to how successful a person might be in life, throughout life. Incorporating bodily-kinesthetic strategies in teaching can positively influence children's learning experience. The following research project investigates the research on the bodily-kinesthetic intelligence, bodily-kinesthetic teaching strategies, teaching strategies linked to student achievement, and mathematics textbooks. Lastly, the project culminates with a resource handbook that helps educators use the bodily-kinesthetic intelligence to improve classroom learning.
