5th grade collaborative fairy tales

We are working on collaborative stories and what better than using fairy tales to teach kids about collaborating.  In our assignment each student is in a group of 3.  #1 starts out the story with once upon a time like every good fairytale. #1 then shares that document out to #2 and #3. Then each student is assigned a part to collaborate on.  #1 chooses the characters, #2 choose the where and #3 chooses the when and then we go back to a problem , some dialogue and some other events and voila a story is born. What's even better is that when they are creating this story they are all doing it simultaneously with google docs.  Even the kids are amazed on how slick it works to collaborate on one document.
