If you would like to share information about you: email address, Skype name, Twitter name, etc., please feel free to add it to the chart. Some teachers mentioned that they would like to actually "meet" some of the students that work on their story.
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. Illustrations can be drawn and photographed or created using a computer program such as Kidpix.

Adventure at the Museum
One day my class went on a school excursion to the museum. When we got to the museum we split up into groups. In my group there was Jonathan, Alex, Jackson, Eliza and Bianca. We walked off to the adventure section.
Bianca who was smarter than a computer but a bit naughty made the trip a little bit more exciting than it should have been.
When we got to the Adventure Section we saw a funny looking thing under a sheet in the back corner. There was an old sign with “Silver Flashback (time-traveller)” written on it.
Bianca being the naughtiest one in the class, ducked underneath the sheet and reprogrammed the time machine. She called us over and pulled us in to show us the controls.
And before we knew it the time machine had VANISHED! “BOOM!”
All around us, the museum started to shake and swirl. We started to feel dizzy and just as I was about to scream, the shaking and swirling stopped suddenly. Jonathan yelled, "Cool!" and we all looked in his direction. He was pointing to a tall robot headed straight for us. It had gigantic, red eyes and its body was made of what looked like junk from the dumpster. There were also two antenna sticking out of its octagonal-shaped head. Eliza and Alex looked at each other with fear in their eyes. Bianca, who of course always has something to say, stepped forward and said, "What are you doing here?" and the robot pulled out a strange looking device. The device was shaped like a funky water bottle, but had bubbling purple goo in the middle. With a quick flick of his wrist, he squirted Bianca leaving her dripping with purple goo. The robot then spoke in a deep, terrifying tone and said, "You are now under my control!" The robot started to move away, and Bianca followed like a puppet. The others in the group looked around. I looked down and noticed that the time machine was gone.
And suddenly it hit me… my feet were no longer touching the ground and neither were anyone else’s. Alex whined, “It’s really cold in here and my sweatshirt is not doing anything to help.” Then, Jackson looked out the window of the museum, and yelled, “We’re in space! We’re in space!” Suddenly, Eliza started flipping out and complained, “What are we going to do? We’re trapped in space, it’s freezing here, we’re running out of air, we don’t have space suits, and there’s a robot running around with Bianca, with hypnotizing purple goo!!” Jackson said, with a shaky voice, “Relax. It’s going to be okay”, but you could see the fear in his eyes. Jonathan suggested we all split up. “Jackson and Jonathan, you go find the time machine,” I told them, “Alex, Eliza and I will follow the robot.” The kids split up and a minute later they heard a blood-curdling scream….
In a split second Eliza’s team looked over their shoulder and realized that she was missing because she had gone in search of Bianca. Eliza ended up in the robot factory and saw, with her own eyes, the evil robot's making slimy purple goo with Bianca. Eliza stared and stared and pretty soon something weird happened. A giant purple goo monster grew from the floor and launched the slimy purple goo at Eliza.
Just as the purple goo was about to splash on Eliza, Alex jumped in front of her and he got slimed instead. Suddenly, a loud POP sounded behind us and the time machine appeared along with Jonathan and Jackson. Jonathan hollered, "Everybody get over here! Quick!" They grabbed Bianca and carried her to the time machine. Eliza and I shoved Alex toward it. Jackson pushed some buttons and we began to feel whoozy again. We felt a big THUD and were afraid to open our eyes, but then we heard our teacher calling our names. "WHEW," I sighed, "back in the museum." Our group joined the rest of the class in the Museum Gift Shop. I thought everything was back to normal until I turned around and staring at me, with big, red eyes was a life-size robot holding a container of purple goo...
