Progressive Story 27
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 me. 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 to write): Sir Bennington’s Adventure

Type your story here:
Sir Bennington was on his way to Egypt on an expedition to find King Tut's sacred gems that are still missing. While he was walking in the desert a huge sandstorm erupted. He jumped face first into the sand pulling his hood over his head. When the sandstorm was over he saw a man kneeling over him. The man asked "Where have you come from?" Sir Benington said I have come from England. I am looking for the sacred golden necklace of King Tut. I don't think that is a good idea said the man.

"Why do you think it is a bad idea?" asked Sir Benington.
"The legend says that anyone who disturbs King Tut's tomb will be cursed," answered the man.
"I will be willing to take that risk, as long as I can find those gems," replied Sir Benington.
"Well, then even though I think it is dangerous, I will go with you for the adventure of a lifetime. It will be safer with two people instead of just one. Meet me at dawn in this same place."
The man disappeared into the night, and Sir Benington took shelter in a cave.
The next morning at dawn, Sir Benington met the man as planned. He was carrying with him meat, two bows, water, rope, a pocket knife, and a mysterious book.
"My name is Wilson," said the man. "Trust me to be your guide on this journey. You must follow my directions and never look inside my book. It holds many secrets, but I am the only one who can read them. Otherwise, we might suffer cruel consequences." Sir Benington agreed to let Wilson lead the way. The two men set out in the direction of King Tut's tomb.

Two days passed and all the two men saw was the bare sand and the hot burning sun with a blank, blue sky above them. Suddenly, without any warning, they encountered a jackal. Sir Bennington reached for the bow while Wilson grabbed the pocket knife. Fear petrified them as Wilson remembered they had the meat. Wilson pulled an arrow from his quiver and rammed the meat onto the tip of the arrow and sent it flying over the desert. The jackal was distracted and no longer a threat. After surviving the jackal incident, the extreme heat and blinding sand storms, Sir Bennington said, “this is a treacherous journey”. Wilson responded “didn’t I tell you so? Are you willing to go on?” “yes” Bennington reported and they started back on the journey and finally found King Tut’s tomb. They went inside and discovered a room filled with gems as Wilson fell to his knees and said “finally, I have found you” and fainted right on the spot. Sir Bennington panicked and forgot everything Wilson told him and suddenly opened the mysterious book. As he was looking at the pages, he touched the tomb and a green mist appeared. It flickered and the temple imploded and they were stuck in the tomb forever. The students at Dater School closed their novel and were now ready to write their report.
