Product Description
This is a fun and creative activity for the students to practice their knowledge of different types of narrators.

It contains 32 short extracts that can be used in two ways (or even in many more if you decide).

All the extracts are written using the third person objective narrator.
1. option
Students work in pairs. Give each student a half of a printable. Their task is to write in a few sentences continuation of the extract. However, they need to write it three times, each time using different type of the narrator. Then they cut their printable along the lines they can see and swap what had they written with their partner. They task is now to match their partners' continuations with the correct type of narrator.
2. option
The same extracts are provided in a task card format. Each student is given one card and their task is to change it (INSERT a few words, NOT whole sentences) so the extract will no longer be written using 3rd person objective narrator but you may ask them to change it so it will become 3rd person limited, omniscient or even 1st person or 2nd person. This exercise is best done orally.

Whether you choose the first or the second option, either way your students are not only applying their knowledge of the different types of narrators, but they are doing it in a creative way. They don’t only use their theoretical knowledge but as well their imagination when finishing the extracts and critical thinking when dealing with what their partner wrote. They are engaged and motivated while putting the theory they know into the practice.
