Do you have a hands-on, fiddle fingers learner on your hands? You may find some perfect tactile learning activities listed below to help you creatively teach your tactile learner.

Note: Many of these Tactile learning activities will also work well for children with a Kinesthetic learning style and those with bodily kinesthetic intelligence also.

Select one option from the list of tactile learning activities for teaching any concept your child is currently learning. Write down one of the ideas listed below or come up with your own idea.

If your child has a tactile learning style, and you missed the earlier section of this tutorial which specifically talks about teaching tactile learners using tactile learning activities. You may want to go visit that page before continuing in this tutorial.

When you have made a list of one auditory learning activity, a visual learning activity, kinesthetic learning activities, and an activity for the tactile learning style that you can use in teaching your lesson, you will have created a multisensory lesson plan for your child.

Picking one activity for each learning modality is multisensory teaching in a nutshell.
