Activity Overview


In this activity, students will identify a theme from The Phantom Tollbooth and support the theme with three scenes from the text.


Time

The main character is always rushing to be nowhere in particular, or wasting time because he has nothing to do. Later, he meets Tock, a watchdog whose job it is to make sure that nobody ever wastes any time. At the end of the novel, Milo believes that his parents will be worried because he had been gone for such a long time. However, it turns out that Milo had only been gone an hour.
