Abstract: The mainline of Gardiner’s education theory is “individual intelligence pluralism”, while the core of school physical education view is “body kinesthetic intelligence development theory”; “body kinesthetic intelli-gence” is important intelligence for school physical education development, also a sort of student’s comprehensive intelligence; its core is student’s imitation ability, its mastery requires very hard physical practice. Physical educa-tion teaching process is also closely related to student’s vision-space intelligence and communication-interaction in-telligence. Gardiner’s education theory has the following inspirations to school physical education in China: “body kinesthetic intelligence” has earned a place for school physical education; basing its subject on body kinesthesia, physical education teaching expands various sorts of intelligence such as visual space intelligence, self-perception and self-examination intelligence, communication and interaction intelligence etc; Gardiner’s “colorful spectrum” theory has reference significance for physical education teaching practice; “differential” teaching should be strengthened, and connected to multidimensional evaluation.
