Need a spin on sentences

Looking for a lesson that really hits home when trying to get my students to write quality sentences. Any ideas that worked for your students would certainly be appreciated!

making a Sentence Forest, something like this.

A dog ran.
A dog ran fast.
A scared dog ran fast.
A scared old dog ran fast.
A scared old dog ran down the road fast.

Each sentence is a tree. The longer the sentence, the taller the tree.
Whose sentence is the tallest tree in the forest.

Of course, we put in time practicing writing "good" sentences. Repeated words are only counted once. This avoids "very, very, very, very, fast."
