learning style is almost always joined with the kinesthetic learning.
Both styles involve bodily movement, and are very similar, but the tactile
style is more moderate. it involves the sense of touch, and fine motor
movements, rather than the large, whole-body movements seen in the kinesthetic
learning style. The Tactile Learning Style takes in information through
the sense of touch and feeling, and generally has good eye-hand coordination.
a tactile learning style have active hands. They fiddle with knobs and
buttons, explore objects, examining and evaluating traits of objects.
When in a store, persons with a tactile learning style may feel like they

of the object.
is the primary method for teaching tactile learners. Tactile learners
enjoy manipulatives, using different media such as finger-paints, art
materials, building projects, blocks or objects for math, hands-on science
experiments, lap-booking (making their own books), games, making models,
dioramas, etc. If your child is a tactile-based learner, you will find
a project-oriented method of learning will probably appeal to your child's
need to have active hands.
