Abstract

Elementary school students in various aspects of life need bodily-kinesthetic intelligence. Therefore, the study seeks to determine the level of bodily-kinesthetic intelligence of first grade students in elementary school. The study design is a descriptive with survey method. The participants are 103 first grade elementary school students in the Bantul Regency of Yogyakarta area. The data collection used the Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence Rating Scale (BKI-RS) (Cronbach’s alpha = 0.949 and r > 0.05) which was done through observation when the children did some physical activity. The descriptive analysis carried out by IBM SPSS Statistic 23 to evaluate the data obtained and make a category which describing the bodily-kinesthetic intelligence level of students. The results showed that bodily-kinesthetic intelligence in first grade elementary school students divided into three categories that is 18 students (17.5%) in the low category, 62 students (60.2%) in the Medium category, and 23 students (22.3%) in the High category. It can conclude that most first grade elementary school students have moderate level of bodily-kinesthetic intelligence, even though there are some students who are low and high levels. The varying levels of the bodily-kinesthetic intelligence of first grade elementary school students shows that there is still a need to develop through various physical activities in physical education and sports.
