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 Instructions Page for more information.

If you would like to share any contact information please feel free to add it to the chart. This way your classes have a chance to actually "meet" some of the students that collaborate on their story.

Please feel free to make corrections to your name/school/location or add the names of teachers if you are working with someone on this project.

Title (Given by the last class): The Legend of the Golden Donut"

Start your story here:

Once upon a time, there were three friends named Cocoa Puffs, Mitch, and Rigby. They were secret undercover agents and were given the assignment from their boss to find the LOST GOLDEN DONUT!!! The Golden Donut was worth a katrillion dollars and whoever found it first would rule the world! They had to keep the donut away from the wrong hands, like Dr. Oompaloompa, who was sitting and drinking milk with his milk mustache in his evil blimp! Their boss, Big Timmy, had stumbled across the lost Golden Donut Compass on a trip to Egypt he enjoyed a few years back. Big Timmy wanted to give the mission to his three best agents. Cocoa Puffs, Mitch, and Rigby were on their way to their private jet.

As the agents boarded the plane, Big Timmy handed them the Golden Donut Compass and said "Here, this might help you in your journey. Be very careful with it. The compass is very fragile and has a map of all the countries that might be hiding the Golden Donut." Big Timmy then handed the ancient artifact to Mitch who then placed it in his backpack. The plane ride was bumpy both because of weather and the agents fighting. Each of them thought he should be the one in charge of the compass. A verbal fight took place and they each started grabbing for Mitch's bag. The compass dropped out and shattered into 3 pieces, each piece having a continent on it.

The trio encountered Dr. Oompaloompa at a gas station. He said: “I have decided to do a very nice thing. I am going to give you the doughnut!” Cocoa Puffs reached his hand out to grab it. It shocked him! “Ha,ha,ha,ha,ha…..April fools!” said Dr. Oompaloompa. Cocoa Puffs got mad and slapped Dr. Oompaloompa in the face.
Unfortunately, Cocoa Puffs was wearing an Evil Eye amulet and it turned him into a bird. In all the chaos, Dr. Oompaloompa escaped in his giant blimp. He landed on an Island. There he met Waka-Flaka-Waka, the giant sumo wrestling baby! Waka-Flaka-Waka wanted to leave the island because he missed his mama. He stole Dr. Oompaloompa’s blimp and started to fly away. He was too big and heavy so the bottom of the blimp ripped apart and hit a tree. The giant baby found a kimono hanging from the tree that he decided to wear because he had a really good taste of fashion. At that moment, Cocoa Puffs, Mitch, and Rigby got to the island and could not believe their eyes…

They saw flying pigs! The pigs swooped down, grabbed Rigby, and flew away in the blink of an eye. So they went into a canyon, and they encountered a bounty hunter. He said, "Give me three ice cream sandwiches, and I'll take the pigs out with my banjo." They agreed, but the only one with the ice cream sandwiches was Dr. Oompaloompa. So they traveled toward the smoke in the west of the woods, where Dr.Oompaloompa had fled. "You fly ahead, Cocoa Puffs, and overlook their camp," Mitch ordered. But suddenly, a giant frog ripped out of the trees; it looked vicious. And then, a giant rat appeared with a spiked collar with letters on it entitling "BoBo." Then the agents saw that the baby Waka-Flaka-Waka was on the rat's back. Then Mitch took out his sling-shot penguin (sound familiar?) and got the frog between the eyes, and the frog hopped off. So then Cocoa Puffs took out his sling-shot and aimed it at Waka-Flaka-Waka. He shouted, "Give us Rigby and show us where the doughnuts are!" The baby replied, "NEVER!" But the rat suddenly flipped the baby over the rainbow and everybody heard a splat in the distance. Then the rat said, "I'll show you where the pig's nest is, and I'll help you find the doughnut."

Cocoa Puffs was looking down as he flew into a wall and that was the end of Cocoa Puffs painful life. Luckily a girl named Cassidy walked by and said “I bet you need a back-up after that dreadful incident.” Very intrigued, Mitch responded: “How do you know you can waltz right in and be one of us?” Confidently she replied: “I am Cassidy Blair and I am a go getter.” Mitch started crying after Cassidy’s inspirational speech and allowed her to become an agent. Immediately after he invited her to their team, he was captured by one of the flying pigs. Cassidy went to rescue both Mitch and Rigby and realized that Mitch was killed as he fell from the pig in mid air. She found Rigby starving and shaking on the pig’s nest so she took him to Goldberg’s for a bagel and coffee. The two of them were now what was left of the team and they needed to report back to their boss big Timmy. As they ordered their bagels, Cassidy realized that she was served a golden bagel! The mystery was solved! There was no golden donut! They saved the day as they took the golden bagel back to big Timmy and turned everyone they saw on their way into fashion models!
