Since a very young age, Kevin has always loved to draw with his fingers in the sand box. Kevin shines:
– in Science lessons where he mixes oil and water together to see which has more density
– in Math lessons where he gets to measure the heights of his classmates to understand units of measure
– in English lessons where he writes his spelling words on his desk in shaving cream
Kevin is an example of a kinesthetic or phsyical learner. Learning takes place when this student can engage themselves phsyically in the activity and carry out operations using movement. These students enjoy making discoveries on their own while doing rather then learning through lecture or demonstration.
