After reading, we created this poster.
Then, we talked about how they would feel if THEY went on a roller coaster! I especially LOVED that someone said he'd feel alive. Not me! I'd be absolutely TERRIFIED! As you can see "scared" was right at the top of the list.
If you have a Mac then you must know about PHOTO BOOTH. If not, you MUST check it out. It has some FANTASTIC backgrounds. Of course one is of a roller coaster. I took each of the kid's pics and added it to his/her writing piece.
The kids couldn't get enough of this and were telling other students I had taken them on a field trip to ride a roller coaster. I'll admit, I was laughing too!
Here's a copy of the Roller Coaster Ride paper if you can use it!!
