I love the lesson and so did the students!! The students even want to rewrite the ending! Thanks for a great lesson that addresses the standards for point of view so perfectly for third graders! The poem "Giant Children" was excellent too!

I taught this lesson and it went over so well! I didn't have a lot of time, so I wasn't able to read the entire book; however, I did read the poem "Giant Children" by Brod Bagert and the kids loved it! I liked the comparison of the book and the poem because the poem is written in first person and the book is written in third. I think it helped make the distinction clear.
