In her My Brilliant Mind and Beautiful Body lesson plan, Shauna used this as her Visual Vignette. She worked together with her students on identifying their Roller Coaster feelings. They placed a roller coaster car on different places on the track and wrote what they would be feeling at those times. Some children had been on a roller coaster and knew exactly what feelings they had. For those that hadn’t been, they talked about and shared what they might be feeling on those different spots throughout the roller coaster ride. It was a great way to explore all types of emotions that can be felt throughout your body with one single experience such as riding a roller coaster.
