Point of View Mini-Lesson | First, Second, and Third Person POV Scavenger Hunt


Teaching your point of view mini-lesson is effortless & engaging with this complete resource! Save valuable planning time and give your students the tools they need to understand first, second, and third person P.O.V. Using the editable slideshow, you’ll have everything you need to teach your lesson. Then, send your students on a scavenger hunt to find examples of each. Afterward, they will watch short films and evaluate the impact of each point of view.


This Point of View Mini-lesson Covers:

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

After using the editable presentation to teach POV, students will go on a scavenger hunt to find three different types of narration in literature. Feel free to extend the requirement or scale it back!

Finally, scan the QR codes to watch a short film, evaluate the point of view, and determine what can be learned from it. Students will consider:

  • Whose point of view the film is based on,
  • What is revealed through the POV,
  • Why the author might have chosen that POV,
  • How the story would be different if told from a different POV.

You’ll appreciate the visually appealing AND editable slideshow and the valuable planning time you just saved.

‍ Your students will love the interactive activities that go hand-in-hand with the presentation. Both printable and digital versions are included!
