Jane Lippencott, Mary Gen Sanner, and Sonja Kretschmar How The Sense Works Demonstration/Application of the Sense Strengths and Limitations Your kinesthetic sense allows you to be aware of your body position
This awareness leads to knowledge about your movements and actions Sense of relative position of neighboring parts of the body and strength of effort being employed in movement; sense that detects bodily position, weight, and movement of muscles tendons and joints. The kinesthetic sense is what makes it possible to recreate a three dimensional object on paper without looking at what is being drawn

Take out a piece of paper and writing utensil . Connections of Kinesthetics
to Knowledge The Kinesthetic Sense Through the kinesthetic sense you can learn to catch a ball. The kinesthetic sense allows you to know what position you must be in in order to catch the ball.
