Bodily/kinaesthetic intelligence is one of the many types of intelligence described in multiple intelligence theory. People with significant bodily/kinaesthetic intelligence may enjoy doing things rather than reading or hearing about them, and are good at making things and at physical activities in general.

Example
Total Physical Response is an example of an approach that seeks to develop and support this kind of intelligence.

In the classroom
A learner with bodily/kinaesthetic intelligence may enjoy drama and physical games such as running dictations and mime rather than more static activities. In general they may welcome opportunities to get up and move around the class.
