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.

Search for the Secret Treasure
Somewhere in the pacific on a lost volcanic island, Bob, George, and Harold were looking for treasures. These treasures were from the ruins of the village of the stone people. No one has ever been able to find the hidden treasures. They thought if they found them they would be rich and famous!

The mysterious letters had come by registered mail. They were hand-delivered to Bob, a movie cameraman from California, to George, an engineer from Australia, and to Harold, a seasoned mountain guide and part-time doctor from Colorado. A map of an oval-shaped island with a large crater in the center of it was included in each letter. The same message was written in all three letters. "Come and find the treasure of your dreams! The adventure of a lifetime awaits you!" They were signed, "Anonymous. P.S. A plane will pick you up at midnight. Don't worry. We know where you live."

The plane picked them up at 4:00 in the morning and took them while they were sleeping for a five hour flight to the volcanic island. Then they landed on the island. “Whoa, we forgot that we were coming to the volcanic island,” said Bob. When they woke up a pterodactyl took them into the air and flew them into the volcano. They realized that the volcano was not a real one but a fake one with a maze and obstacles. They heard a whisper, “To find the treasure, follow your maps,” said the grumpy pirate. He knew that he would now have competition in finding the lost treasure. The maps showed to go right but when they did they fell into a hole and landed into a cage. They had fallen into a booby trap! “Ahhhh!” said George. “What just happened?” They saw a light and found a secret lever. It was just out of reach. “Harold, didn’t you have a rope in your pocket?” said Bob. “Yes, I do. Here it is,” said Harold. George climbed on top of Bob and Harold climbed up on top of George. Then Harold made a lasso out of the rope and threw it to the secret lever. It just made it to the lever and Harold pulled with all of his might. The cage lifted and they were free! They followed the light to a bridge. As they were going across the bridge, it started to collapse! “Oh no! Let’s hurry and get to the other side!” they said. In their haste, they dropped the maps which fell into the swirling river.

George said “Crickey what will we do now?”
Bob exclaimed “ I wish we could turn this into a movie!”
Harold yelled “I’ll lead the way.”
They ran into a tunnel and suddenly found themselves face to face with a fierce TRex.
"AhhhAhhh - Double CRICKEY"
They ducked under TRex’s legs and raced into a new tunnel. The tunnel was dark and creepy and they heard a rumbling noise but they could see a light just in the distance so they ran towards the light. They then found themselves in a big cavern where the floor was made of thick sand. As they looked around Bob with his camera on zoom noticed a strange X marked on the ground.
Harold said “That must be where the treasure is and look there are some shovels.”
They raced to where X marked the spot and dug until they felt a hard surface. It was a treasure chest. When they opened the treasure chest there was a bottle with a note in it. The note said -
Welcome to Grumpy Pirates Adventure Theme Park.
Your treasure has been found.
You have worked together as team and had a great time.

As they are read the note The Grumpy Pirate appeared in front of them. He told them the story of how he had made the theme park that no one knew about. He explained that he was grumpy because he was lonely, bored and unhappy because no one ever came to visit and that's why he made up the story about the hidden treasure.
Harold, George and Bob agreed that it was a great adventure park and a real treasure. They promised the pirate that they would use all their skills to tell the world about ...
The Grumpy Pirate Volcanic Theme Park.
