Learning Objective

The student will identify the opposing perspectives of two main characters within five short fictional stories.


Here's a hands-on, creative way for your students to practice identifying various perspectives (points of view) as they read! This is an engaging activity where your students read short passages and identify differing points of view as they read. Then, the students transfer their answers to the craftivity and make "perspective sunglasses". The finished products make a unique bulletin board or fun school hallway display! It can also be used as a novel entry in an interactive notebook!

I begin by reminding my students that the word "perspective" includes the Latin root -spect. We review the meaning of the Latin root (to see). We discuss how different people can "see" things differently.

Students read five short stories. After reading each story, your students will identify the various perspectives presented within the story. Then they can begin the craftivity! Student-friendly directions are included so that you can place the directions under your document camera, and students can refer to them as they complete the project. (An answer key is also included.)

This project was developed to address Common Core standards RI 5.6 and RL 5.6. The authors of the standards use the term "points of view". Therefore, I also spend time comparing "perspectives" and "points of view", and differentiating between the other type of "point of view" we learn to identify (first person, second person, etc.) in fifth grade.

Check out the preview to get a good idea of what is included in the product.
