The Time We Ran Away (and other short stories) is a small book with a compilation of chapter teasers from popular children's books (for grades 4-6). I received a class set with our Scholastic purchases and wanted to create a worksheet to go with it. I assigned the book and this 6-page packet for my 4th grade students to do over Thanksgiving break. It has questions and vocabulary for all the stories in the book except the 2nd story (which I thought was a bit too middle-school age for my students).
We have studied Greek Mythology already, and I noticed an allusion to Pandora's Box in the last story in the book. If your students would not know the Pandora's Box story, you might want to delete that question and add a different one.
