Stories and Voicethreads
Your class will be writing ONE group paragraph(s) for the story (not each student). The first class will write the intro paragraph(s). Then the next class will read the paragraph(s) and decide how they want to continue the story. This will continue until the last class on the list writes the ending and gives the story a title. Your paragraph(s) will be typed onto this Wiki page. You will also need to send (email as .jpg) the 3 pictures to your Teacher Leader. The pictures should illustrate events in the section that your class wrote.
Please visit the
for more information.
Please add your information to the chart. This way your classes can "see" where the story is traveling and have a chance to actually "meet" some of the students who collaborate on their story.

Title (Given by the last class):
Start your story here:
Once there were three people who were launched into space. Their names were Charlie, Adela, and Ebonie. They wanted to see the planet Jupiter. They were launching tomorrow and were very excited! Finally it was tomorrow! They said their good byes and were launched into space. When they got to space, they ate French Fries. Then, aliens smelled the Fries, from Charlie’s, Ebonie’s, and Adela’s space ship and wanted to eat fries too! The aliens chased Adela, Ebonie, and Charlie around space. Then Charlie got lost. The aliens captured him. Ebonie, and Adela tried to find him. While they were
looking for Charlie, the aliens captured them too. Magical unicorns tried to help Ebonie, Adela, and Charlie get back to earth, but an asteroid hit their ship and they crashed on Jupiter.
Carefully, Charlie, Ebonie, and Adela climbed from under the damaged spaceship. Before they could explore Jupiter, Ebonie insisted on checking herself in the mirror, to make sure she still looked good. As she held the mirror up to examine herself, she saw the reflection of an alien in the cracked mirror. She screamed and grabbed Adela’s arm. The three friends ran as fast as they could go. The aliens were chasing them, getting closer, and closer. They saw a flash in front of them. They were surrounded by unicorns. It appeared they were there to help. The unicorns’ leader was a wise older unicorn with a rainbow-colored braided goatee, named Chad. Chad was a bit rebellious. He didn’t want to turn the children over to the aliens, like his herd wanted. He devised a get-away plan. Chad shouted for the three space explorers to climb onto his back. He would have to fly them to safety! He hoped he could make it beyond the walls of the alien's base in the center of the planet. The children would have to keep an eye out for the unicorn destroying robots lurking about on the planet, and in the gas-like clouds surrounding it. He was just about to head for earth when he heard Charlie shout the warning, "OH, NO! Now we are doomed for sure!"
“Boom!” The unicorn was gone! He was nowhere in sight. The unicorn destroying robots had captured Chad. “Now how are we going to get back home?” Ebonie cried. As soon as she finished her question, the ground started to rumble and two arms and a head popped out of the planet Jupiter. The giant grabbed Charlie and Adlea. Now it was up to Ebonie to save them all. What would she do?
Ebonie waited until the arms and head of the giant popped back in Jupiter. She started to brainstorm ideas on how to help her friends. "Of course! I can build my own robot", Ebonie said excitedly. She got started right away pulling "parts" out of Jupiter. Once she was finished building her robot, it started digging under Jupiter looking for Charlie and Adela. When the robot got into the middle of Jupiter he spotted them! The robot quickly grabbed Charlie, Adela, and Ebonie and threw them into the Milky Way.
After spinning around the Milky Way Adela, Charlie, and Ebonie crashed landed in a new solar system, Ht7 Sredarg Elur, on the planet called Diputs. They were very dizzy so they became unconscious and did not notice an Alien who had accidently come with them. The planet that they found themselves on was a wasteland littered with many broken ships. The inhabitants were thieving mechanics with squid-like faces and humanoid bodies. Diputs was the only planet in its solar system that could sustain life. It orbits around a massive Red Giant that sends out super solar flares every two weeks. The inhabitants did not die because they had evolved. People who were not from Diputs would die from the super solar flares.
The alien was surprised finding the kids with him so he used his teleportation watch to return to his colony. Adela took a little walk because they were stranded on an unknown planet. Not aware of where she was walking, she tripped on a rock and tumbled down a hill. When she got up she saw a fully operational space ship will a full fuel tank. It was wide, slender, and had an air lock so people could get out to fix it in space. As Adela approached the ship, a familiar figure came from the back. It was Ebonie. Her blond hair was filthy and it was going every which way. As Adela got closer, Ebonie started running to her and Adela ran as fast as she could to Ebonie. She looked back and she tripped and Ebonie caught her and picked her up and brought her to the space ship and they lifted off. Adela became absolutely frightened because they were really high up now and there was no Charlie in sight. Adela started to look around for Charlie. Ebonie bumped into Adela. Adela hit the air lock control and it opened. Adela was barely holding on. She let go and out of nowhere Charlie grabbed her and pulled her back into the ship and Adela ran and hid in a giant box full of spare parts.
After calming his good friend down, Charlie furiously sprinted towards Ebonie. As he confronted Ebonie a swell of anger surged within Charlie. He noticed he was screaming at the top of his lungs at Ebonie. Frightened to the bone Ebonie quickly explained what happened and finally apologized to her comrade. Then the silent alarm went off and Charlie and Ebonie both quickly turned to see why. They both gasped to see that they had forgotten to shut the air lock door. They could not go out there since they were in space and there was no air to breathe and and their space suits were in there too! Like two blubbering children Charlie and Ebonie both started screaming at each other again. While arguing, Ebonie tripped on an untied shoelace and hit the wormhole generator button. The countdown began at one minute, and Ebonie fell unconscious after looking at the countdown. Charlie knew this was bad because if they went through a wormhole with the air lock open they would be crushed. Then Adela came in, breaking the silence. Adela had an idea, but she knew it had to be quick. She looked for the item for 30 seconds and, luckily, found it. The count down had started, though… 10,9,8,7,6,4 “Hey! What happened to five?” shouted Adela as she threw the projectile at the open air lock. The air lock shut and they went through the wormhole safely, and made it back to Earth. They all celebrated.
