The aims of this study were: 1) To develop short movie activities and contemplative practices designed to enhance existential intelligence among primary school students, 2) To create a scale of existential intelligence, and 3) To study the effect of activities and contemplative practice by use of behavioral instruments. Voluntary participants were 31 students from Grade 5 of Banhanwittaya School, Prachinburi Area 2 in the academic year 2018, being randomly and equally assigned to 4 experimental groups. Research instruments consisted of 1) an activities plan to enhance existential intelligence, and 2) a scale of existential intelligence. Data were analyzed using One-Way ANOVA.
The results were as follows:
1) Short movie activities and contemplative practices could enhance existential intelligence, 2) the scale of existential intelligence was suitable for use, and 3) gender and characteristic of existential intelligence after watching a short film activity with contemplative practices did not differ in terms of the existential-intelligence score.
