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):

Start your story here: The Mega-War!


Long ago in an ordinary grocery store called “The Mega Market”, the last customer paid for his groceries. Teddy, the store manager, told the cashier, “Johnny, be sure you lock up and turn off the lights.”
Johnny nodded distractedly, closed his cashbox, locked up, and went home to help his son with his homework. The lights inside “The Mega Market” remained on all night.
At the exact same time that Johnny arrived home, back at “The Mega Market” something odd began to happen. Never before had the lights been left on all night.
The heads of lettuce jiggled and began rolling off their display as the sound of leaves crunching and bruising filled the store. The juicy, orange carrots started to twist and turn.
“Attention men! Apparently the lights have been left on,” declared Commander Carl the Carrot. “Meet at the Air Force Base in 5 minutes.”
All the carrots said, “Sir, yes, sir!” and spun out of their rubber bands and twirled their stems like military helicopters to the nearby vegetable cooler.
The tallest asparagus, Annie, was already shouting, “All health food, please form a line.” The ears of corn perked up and followed Annie’s instructions.
Commander Carrot spoke loudly for all the health food. “We must stop our enemy, the mighty, greasy junk food. They are soon going to attack our base, and every health food item is needed for the war. Prepare yourself for battle!”

Over at the enemy camp “Candy Land,” the junk food army is unaware of the impeding battle. The bright lights that were mistakenly left on awakens everyone from their lazy sleep. Dan the Dorito and Jake the Cake decide that since they are awake they would play video games. Dan lingers from his chip bag and exclaims, “Oh, no! The batteries are dead.” “We must go search for more batteries,” shouts Jake. So they embark out on a quest for more batteries. As they search the aisles, Jake notices a commotion near the produce section. They see Annie the Asparagus and Carl the Carrot preparing for battle against the junk food. What they don’t realize was they were coming to battle them! The healthy army had outsmarted the lazy, greasy junk food. Jake the Cake and Dan the Dorito retreat back to Candy Land as the healthy army follows them.


When Dan the Dorito and Jake the Cake get back to Candy Land, there is one problem; The Healthy Army has followed them back.
All of a sudden, eggshell bombs fall from the sky! The Asparagus were manning “bean-zukas” from behind the banana barricades. The radioactive radishes turned bright red and exploded!
The greasy junk food awakened and prepared for battle! Airheads jump from the shelves onto the chip bags which exploded, erupting across the apples and the cauliflower. Twizzlers peel off and form into slingshots, shooting grease balls across a squad of squash, landing in the floral department.
King M&M rolls onto the battlefield. Queen Pineapple waddles out to meet him. They decide to dual for the win. Queen Pineapple pulls out her sour cherry mace, swinging it around and around. King M&M whips out his red push-pop light saber.


As Queen Pinapple swings her mace at King M&M, he tries to jump out of the way. But, because he is so full of sugar he can't jump, so he rolls out of the way barely escaping the sour cherry mace. Larry Licorice runs to his rescue and using his stretchy arms lifts King M&M back to his feet. Around them both armies were quickly approaching. The junk food army was led by Captin Crunch who was riding Tony the Frosted Tiger. Carl the Carrot and Annie the Asparagus were leading the health food army. Carl quickly set up the carrot catapult to shoot baby carrots at Captin Crunch and the rest of the army. The junk food army decided to open Hawaiian Punch and try to drown the health food army. What they forgot was that M&Ms melt when they get wet. King M&M's colors quickly began to fade. Thinking quickly, Queen Pineapple uses her spikes to cut open Wallie the Watermelon. The health food army and Queen Pineapple quickly climb aboard.


“Hold on tight!” Queen Pineapple ordered to her troops. “It’s going to be a juicy ride.” Aisle by aisle, the “Health Food Army” sought out the remaining greasy junk food. They quickly spotted Sergeant Soda, Colonel Corn Chip, and Private Pop Tarts being sugary, salty, and lazy. Immediately, Queen Pineapple counted down, “3…2… 1…” and the “Health Food Army” began slinging the black watermelon seeds at the junk food like bowling balls hitting their pins. One by one, the members of “Candy Land” plummeted to the shiny floor. The members of the “Health Food Army” took the place on the shelves of the fallen junk food and settled in for the night. Queen Pineapple, being the “sharp” leader she was, rode Wallie the Watermelon back and forth to pick up the remaining members of their army from the produce section and health food aisles. Anita Apples, Pauly Pretzel Rods, Charlie Cheese Sticks, and Walter Whole Wheat, joined their friends on the shelves. Before they knew it, all the junk food was replaced with healthier choices. King M&M and Queen Pineapple met once more to settle their dispute. King M&M surrendered to the Queen and agreed that making healthy choices was the wisest decision and he marched his army out the door. The next morning when Teddy and Johnny arrived at work, Teddy was shocked and disappointed to see that all of the junk food had disappeared! “Oh no!” he screamed. “What will our customers have to eat now that all the junk food is gone?” Then Johnny reassuringly said, “Well, I heard the watermelons are just as sweet as candy! Now let’s sweep up all of these seeds. How did they get here anyway?”
