Puzzles are not just for primary grades or math. These point of view puzzles will not only allow your students to practice 4th/5th grade level point of view skills, but they will also be engaged with the novel format.
This reading center resource includes 16 point of view puzzles to practice identifying point of view of fictional stories (1st person and 3rd person only).

Two different versions of the puzzles are included to help you best use this resource for your students.
Version 1: The students will read each text, determine if the story is written from a 1st person point of view or a 3rd person point of view, and then find the puzzle piece that matches. An optional recording sheet allows you to use this version and also have some students do the advanced part from Version 2. Using the advanced recording sheets, the students also determine who the narrator is if the story is written from 1st person point of view. If the story is 3rd person point of view, they will determine if it is 3rd person objective, 3rd person limited, or 3rd person omniscient.
Version 2: The students will read each text, determine the point of view of the story, and find the puzzle piece that best matches that. This version of the puzzles will require the students to find the puzzle piece that provides the point of view and the correct narrator for 1st person point of view stories and the correct type of 3rd person point of view for stories written from the 3rd person point of view.
Answer keys are also included.
