put on any or all of the following skills. For examples, instead of teaching a map in
a conventional way, the task may be given to students to draw one so as to develop
their Spatial Skills; a number of maps thus drawn may be used for comparison so
as to develop Logical-mathematical Skills; a piece of write up may be prepared
on the same so as develop Linguistic Skills; Another task may be given on another
topic to act out stressing Bodily-kinesthetic Skills; A piece of poem or song may
be collected and is presented in the class room stressing Musical Skills.

Spatial Skills: The ability to perceive the visual-spatial world accurately

between these elements. It includes the capacity to visualize, to graphically
represent visual or spatial ideas, and to orient oneself appropriately in a spatial
matrix.
Bodily-kinesthetic Skills: Expertise in using one’s whole body to express
ideas and feelings (e.g., as an actor, a mime, an athlete, or a dancer) and facility in
