Our collaborative writing project with five other classes, the Tale Trail, continues right here!
Several weeks ago, the classes voted on a topic for the story and the idea with the most votes was “An underground tunnel is found under the school. It takes you to…”
We will now add our part to the story, and then Mr Avery's class will continue it.
Suddenly Tiffany heard Max call her name. She quickly turned and saw a packet of cotton candy flying through the air towards her. Tiffany reached out and grabbed it. "Mmm, cotton candy IS delicious. I'll have it later," she thought to herself, but she still said to Max, "Maximilian, hurry up!"

When Max caught up he grabbed Tiffany by the hand and exclaimed, "Let's take a break and decide what to do."
Tiffany agreed so the two children sat down and started to talk. "I don't know how Ben Franklin and the carnival got there but I don't want to go back to it," announced Tiffany.
"Okay, we won't," agreed Max, "but let's not go back to school yet."
Tiffany leaned against the wall. CRAAAACK! SMAAAASH!
A part of the wall moved like a secret door! Tiffany was alarmed but Max was excited. He rushed through the opening. Tiffany stood watching and feeling scared.

She charged through the gap and the door slammed shut.
The children pushed and heaved at the door, but it was no use.
Max and Tiffany stared around them.
"What place are we in?" they wondered.
"How did that happen?" exclaimed Tiffany.
"I don't know, but let's find out," replied Max, as they were looking down at some steep, stony steps.
They were in a cave. It was spacious and rocky. There were fire torches on the walls!
|The cave was big and rocky, with fire torches on the walls.|
"I think so," answered Max. "Shall we explore?" begged Max.
"Absolutely!" answered Tiffany, "but first let's eat this cotton candy." .....
