Literature for Big Kids

In third grade, writing starts to take on greater significance, and as kids learn to express themselves through the written word there's no end to the possibilities! This fun writing activity takes a regular task—writing a story—and transforms it into a collaborative writing experience that's sure to reveal hilarious results! Here's how to get started on this activity, which makes for a great group or party game.

What You Need:

  • Lined paper and pens

What You Do:

  1. The first person should start writing a story. Do not reveal what you are writing about to anyone else! Use your imagination - the zanier the better. When you have written about a paragraph, fold the paper down so that only the last line can be seen. Pass the paper to the next person.
  2. The second person should read the visible line, and then continue the story! When she's finished, fold the paper over again so that only the last line of her paragraph is visible to the next person.
  3. Repeat until everyone has participated. Then, unfold the paper and read the silly story aloud!
