Multiple Intelligences

This lesson focuses on Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligences. Students determine how they are smart and then learn more about the learning styles and how they apply to children. To make it fun, I will have the students participate in 6 different activities each illustrating various learning styles. Students must identify the learning style(s) illustrated in each activity and justify why. A quiz on the multiple intelligence will complete the lesson.
