for Grade 3
The Perspectives Grade 3 kit spans three reading levels. A three-part anthology, which includes a nonfiction text and two fiction stories, is accompanied by a teacher guide that includes support for up to five days of instruction for each reading level.

Level O: Vegetarianism

This anthology contains a nonfiction text, Healthy Eating, which builds background about nutrition, and two fiction stories, Benji’s Beef and A Feast at Aunt Mel’s Farm, which explore the points of view of vegetarians and meat eaters. The teacher guide leads students to explore facts and opinions, the effects of word choice on point of view, and why it is important to check the facts before coming to a conclusion.

Level O: Vegetarianism


Level P: Robin Hood

The nonfiction text, Robin Hood: A Folk Hero, provides students with historical context for Robin Hood. In the first fiction story, A Pox on Robin Hood, a peasant boy voices his negative view of Robin Hood, while the second fiction story, Dinner at the Castle, leads readers to understand Robin Hood’s motives. The teacher guide engages students to see how a person’s actions affect different people in different ways and that people’s opinions can vary based on how they are affected by those actions.

Level P: Robin Hood


Level Q: Wolves in Yellowstone

Wolves in Yellowstone begins with a nonfiction text (Should Wolves Be Allowed in Yellowstone?) that builds background about wolves and explains the series of events that have led wolves to be reintroduced. The fiction stories explore this issue from the point of view of a park ranger (At Home in Yellowstone) and of a sheep rancher (One Cold Winter). The teacher guide helps students understand that issues are often quite complex and require careful consideration of both sides of an issue, and that people’s circumstances often affect their point of view.
