This research explores the influence of using Role Reversal Approach (RRA) while developing KI - kinaesthetic intelligence in the teaching process of 16 Basic Cognitive Concepts to pre-school and school children. The program was designed for Early Childhood student- teachers and was implemented in preschool first and second grade by the students during their pre-service training in a representative school in the north of Israel. Students were trained by school teachers in practice and supervised by the pedagogical instructor who conducted the research. The program constituted of movement education sessions, aimed at internalizing through the RRA technique 16 basic cognitive concepts (BCC) that were derived out of four movement components (body, space, time and weight). The research used both quantitative and qualitative tools (a concepts’ questionnaire, interviews and observations), to measure the effects of the approach on children’s understanding of basic concepts. The results indicate that the RRA approach enhances understanding and abstraction of all the concepts. Improvement was more significant amongst preschool than school children.
