Carnival: Brain Quest Assignment

Instructions : Write a story about what you would do at the carnival. Be descriptive using sight, smell and touch.

If I went to the carnival, I would see rides and games, smell food, taste cotton candy. I would hear people yell and shout words. I would ride every ride except the flipping ones. It is fun and I can see that slow rides are boring. I won’t ride those but Cera will.

Let’s Talk: Brain Quest Dialogue Assignment

 

Instructions: You speak differently from the way you write.
Imagine you are at a football game when a strange object appears over the field. As the crowd watches in fascination, the object lands on the 30-yard line, and a gang of strange blue creatures pours out and delivers extraterrestrials ice cream to every member of the crowd.

Then imagine how you would tell that story to one of your good friends.
Me: “So, um, I was at a football game, giving the sport a chance. I was watching it in boredom, then a spaceship appeared. It had aliens! These aliens handed out ice-cream!”
Friend: “Right, aliens and ice-cream.”
Me: “Yes, I took a video see here it is. Ice-cream!”
Friend: “What? Why aren’t they abducting them?”

Sea Shanty (Brain Quest Assignment)

By Jayson Knapp

Fifteen Men on the dead mans chest
Yo-ho ho and a bottle of rum
Give toast sailors of the high seas
Those who lost it all
Those who have to gain
Yo-ho ho there’s a balance of gold
Tradition to the pirate name
Rum and treasures to claim
Follow captain orders to treasures go
Sea to sea our boat to row
Yo-ho ho plundering the loot
Bury that chest good and deep
Lose the map to the seven seas

The Jabberwocky was killed yesterday. The Jabberwocky was a dangerous monster. The beast was helped with the Jabiub bird and a Bandersnatch. The Jabberwocky was killed by the sword. He fought for so long he was tired, so he rested on a tree. The Jabberwocky fought with rage and fury. The town cheered when they learned the beast was dead.

Holiday Story Assignment

By Jayson Knapp

Instructions: Make your own holiday story with characters and a plot that reveals characteristics about them. (BrainQuest) 

Once upon a time three friends went ghost hunting, but they found more than ghosts. There were zombies, skeletons, witches, and giant spiders all in one place wanting to take revenge. They will destroy the world and make it a haunted one. The kids went into a fright and fled to tell the town. They did not believe the kids until it was too late. When the attack occurred, the town was terrified. They fled and all that was left were three brave kids turned zombies forever lost to time.

Teacher Commentary: This assignment receives a 0. I like the creativity, but the goal was to create memorable characters and you made forgettable characters. You gave them no name. They have no characteristic except for being maybe brave.
