## Reflection: Joy Area of Parallelograms, Applying the Formula - Section 3: Partner Practice

The Scary Roller Coaster celebration is a classic at our school.  It's one of my personal favorites, too (I'm a roller coaster fanatic!).   I don't use this one in a large group setting (if we had the entire grade together or the entire school) because it is tempting for kids to be a bit silly with the scream at the end.  I like this one in the classroom, though.
