The Ghost Who Couldn’t Scare story

This story was inspired by an old railroad car and tracks I saw for years sitting on the prairie as I drove to visit my parents in Western Illinois.  Weeds grew up around that railroad car and I'm sure people had forgotten all about it.  This is the story I created during many journeys home past that boxcar.

An ideal story for working in partners.  It works with the skills for Collaboration, Imagination, Imitation, Listening, Problem Solving, Repetition, and Story Elements: Theme.
