In fourth grade we are looking at Howard Gardner’s idea that there are many different ways to be intelligent. The kids took a survey to see how they are smart. The kids are now going to do a research project on a person, place or thing that connects to their intelligence. Below is a chart showing what the kids have brainstormed so far. We would love your help! Can you help us think of examples? Your ideas could lead us to learn and research something new!
The intelligences are: Interpersonal (people smart), Intrapersonal (me smart), Naturalistic (nature smart), Bodily-Kinesthetic (body smart), Logical/Mathematical (number smart), Linguistic (language smart), Musical (music smart), Visual Spatial (picture smart). Please add a comment to help us think of famous examples that fit each intelligence. It could be a famous person, invention, concept, art piece, etc.
