Science Freebie! :)
This Science Interest Inventory Freebie is designed for upper elementary grades. I love using interest inventories to find out my students' attitudes toward science and their preferred methods of instruction.
While it doesn't affect WHAT is taught, it does affect HOW I teach it. If no one finds landforms interesting, I know that I will have to find a more engaging way to teach that concept. If everyone enjoys working in groups, I can use cooperative learning more often.
After I collect the Interest Inventories, I make some notes about what it popular and unpopular and how each student feels about science. I try to revisit this information every few months.

How do you use interest inventories?
