  14. 14. Human Hunt Your job now is to walk around the room and find people who can exhibit one of these intelligences. Get them to initial your piece of paper. You can only get one person’s initials once. You cannot sign your own sheet. Have fun with this and try to meet some new people. Behavioral expectations!!!

  16. 16. Wrap Up There is a belief that you can be good at all of them, but inevitably we favor certain intelligences. It is important to know how you are intelligent so you can do your best to adjust and adapt to what you have to learn. If you are musically smart, memorize facts in songs. If you dance well, create a dance about certain stories, or act out a short skit, etc
