In this ReadWriteThink lesson, students use the illustrations and text in Chris Van Allsburg's "Two Bad Ants" to develop an understanding of point of view. After reading the story, students work in pairs to analyze the illustrations and text and to compare and contrast points of view. Finally, using the Stapleless Book student interactive, they write and illustrate their own story to demonstrate their knowledge of point of view.
