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.

Adventures Under the Sea:
Start your story here:
Once upon a time there were four children. They were called Struan, Laura, Bella and Jaxson. They were all good friends. Struan was the joker of the group, Laura was practical one, Bella was the leader and Jaxson was the technical guy. They lived near the sea and often went on little boats trips. One day when they were out sailing the fog suddenly rolled in. “Oh oh” said Struan “I can’t see the shore I think we are going to be late home.” The children got a bit worried as the waves started to get bigger and bigger. All of a sudden the water got darker and darker. Laura asked Jaxson what on earth was that dark patch in the water.
Struan looked closer at the water and shouted exuberantly, “I think it’s a wizard and an army of sea creatures!”
Since he was known to be a joker, his friends didn’t believe him and started to laugh. Suddenly, a colossal swirl of smoke billowed up from the water and a wizard began to appear before the shocked group of friends. A large swarm of sea creatures swam around the bottom of the wizard’s purple cloak. The kids were quite frightened and they all jumped behind Bella for protection. She bravely asked the wizard, “Who are you and where did you come from?”
The wizard answered "I am from a kingdom under the sea. These are my magical sea servants. My name is Reed and I am the most powerful wizard in the sea." Reed the wizard smiled down at them and asked "Would you like to visit my kingdom?" The four kids huddled up and talked about it. When they made their decision, Bella said "We'd love to, but we can't breath under water. How would we get there?" Reed the Wizard smiled and made a big whirl-pool and sent the four kids down under the water. When they stopped spinning, they were all dizzy. They saw mermaids who led them into the castle. Beside the Wizard's chair where was a giant clam. Inside the clam was a giant pearl. It was white and sparkled brightly. As they walked up closer they could hear a voice.
They could hear the Wizard of Darkness saying, “Soon the Kingdom will be mine! I will get that pearl and I will own the powers of the kingdom!” But, Bella secretly stole it before he could. They told the pearl about their problem and the evil Wizard lost his voice and powers. The kids talked with the magical sea servants about a plan to keep the kingdom under peaceful rule. Everybody gathered at the castle under the sea. The meeting was about to begin when Jaxson said, "How are we going to get home?"
Laura was scared for a minute because they didn’t know how to get back home. However, Bella wasn’t. Her mind was already on a different subject. She said to the good wizard, “What will happen when the Wizard of Darkness steals the pearl?” The kind wizard said, “Don’t worry about him. I have enough powers to stop him.” Straun was still wondering about how to get home. The kind wizard said, “Tomorrow he and I will have a talk.” The next day the kind wizard's and villain’s powers were matched. They used their powers until Reed socked the powers right out of Darkness. The Wizard of Darkness could no longer live under water without his powers, and he was gone. The only problem remaining was how to get home. The kind wizard made another whirl-pool. The four kids got back and they all were thinking about the sea kingdom the rest of their lives. The sea kingdom was happy and everyone else was too.
