Learning Objective

Students will read four fiction passages and determine whether the author used first person, second person, third person limited, or third person omniscient point of view.


Here's a hands-on, creative way for your students to practice identifying the four main points of view as they read! This is an engaging activity where your students read short passages and identify which point of view the author used in each story. Then, the students transfer their answers to the craftivity and make four "point of view presents". 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!

The points of view include:

  • First Person
  • Second Person
  • Third Person Limited
  • Third Person Omniscient

The stories are basically the same, just written using four different points of view by the author. Because of this, it truly highlights the differences between the four points of view. When students complete the craftivity, they lift the gift lid to reveal their answer justification.

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.)
