The gifts of kinesthetic learners and how they learn best

  • Learn best through movement
  • Focuses on the whole picture
  • Learn best with 3-D materials
  • Need to move while processing new information, but with very little external stimulation that would distract (let the body move but limit objects and visuals in the environment that would capture their focus away from the lesson)
  • Need to learn using hands-on activities to process learning
  • Are often highly intuitive
  • Need to physically process what they are learning - let them actually do the work rather than listen to how it is done
