dc.description.abstract Any elementary teacher will vouch that differentiation in the classroom is an imperative part of teaching at the elementary level. Differentiating lessons to meet a variety of learning styles and methods is an integral part of delivering a meaningful and poignant lesson. In this thesis, I analyzed how Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences can be applied into the elementary classroom in a variety of subject areas (math, science, language arts, social studies, etc.). The Multiple Intelligence theory can provide a great framework off of which to work when planning meaningful and engaging lessons for students because it incorporates all of their individual and unique learning styles and interests. After analyzing how the theory of multiple intelligences can be used in the elementary classroom, I provide detailed activities incorporating the intelligences for various grade levels. These activities can actually be applied into the classroom and will get students excited to learn. en_US
