Activity Overview

Students will decide what point of view the narrator is speaking in. Using a storyboard, students can show the textual evidence and also illustrate it. The Treasure is told in the third person point of view. Writing from the third person point of view uses pronouns like he, she, it, or they to describe the main character in the narration.

This example storyboard uses one quote from the story. Depending on the level of your class, you may three examples.

Third Person

"When the dream came back a third time, he said, ‘Maybe it's true,’ and so he set out on his journey."
