PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This Interest Inventory Freebie is designed for upper elementary grades. I love using interest inventories to find out my students' attitudes toward different subjects 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.

Visit The Science Penguin to find more ideas and products!

LOVE THIS! I've been homeschooling my son the last couple years, but next school year will be taking a teaching position at a private school. This is perfect for me to learn about my new students' likes/dislikes and to use it to create lessons they enjoy all the more because it's based on their interests! I give it 5 stars!

It printed in half sheets and there were NO settings I could change. Also during printing I got landscape with the printing going horizontal which make it hard to put up.

Hi Madeline,
They are free.
Sorry you're having trouble. This usually has to do with an Adobe Reader update.
This blog post has some great tips to troubleshoot printing and saving issues.
