Could be bradbury.

Our teacher read it to us in 7th grade.

It was a short story in a book with other short stories. It was about these people that lived in a cave but time passed super quick. Like aging very fast and such. I think they had to leave to cave to look for a way out of there. Maybe facing a long trek to find a ship or something... I think this took place on mars,,but that could be off also.

Sorry Im a bit fuzzy bue i know i loved this story and would like to read it again on my own.

Any ideas?

I think what you're looking for can be found in the Autumn People by Ray Bradbury but here's a list of his stories.

It is definitely by Ray Bradbury. What's more, it's defnitely from one of these two collections: R is for Rocket (http://www.spaceagecity.com/bradbury/r.htm (http://) or The Golden Apples of the Sun (http://www.spaceagecity.com/bradbury/goldenapples.htm (http://) . I'm afraid I do not recall the name of this particular story but you'll defnitely find it in one of these, hopefully looking at the contents list of each will help jog your memory. Picking up both books to find this one story certainly won't be a waste either, Bradbury is one of the best short story writers around.

the story is "frost and Ice" or something like that.

Thanks for the help. I think this has caused me to become infatuated with bradbury, im going to the bookstore this weekend to buy up lots of his works.

Cant wait.

That is indeed "Frost and Fire" which I read in R is for Rocket. A phenomenal anthology.
