Bug’s-Eye View

PERSPECTIVE is a big word we learn in order to understand a point of view, situation, or a topic we are interested in. The word ‘perspective’ can make us wonder about the world around us. In this case, think of a bug living in a park, lake, grass area, trees, etc., and imagine their perspective of the world around them.

  1. A bug!!! I’m a bug?!! How did this happen? Just yesterday I was a teacher. I was large, larger than life!!! I must have eaten something weird or maybe this is a dream. Yes that’s it. It is a dream. I feel fuzzy inside. Do you think I am a worm? or maybe a grasshopper. No I have to find a body of water and see my reflection. I think there is a small pond over by the edge of the yard. Oh!!! so that’s why I feel fuzzy. I’m a caterpillar. OOHHH I AM FAT!!! Oh know I better go hide so I don’t get eaten by that huge hawk swooping overhead. I have made it sage in my little dirt hole in the grounnd. Suddenly I feel very hungray. I could eat a carload. I really have a craving for “pizza, chips, soda, chocolate, hamburgers” NO I really have a craving for LEAVES. What is happening to me? I feel like I could burst. My skin feels tight and I can’t sop eating these delicious leaves.

    Hi my name is Torrito and I am dragonfly.
    I am afraid of spiders because one almost ate me
    I eat fly’s because that’s the only thing I like to eat.
    I live in trees.
    I spend my day taking naps.
    I look chubby.
    I think about what to do instead of taking naps.
    My day looks like branches leaves every where and little ants on the branch.
    And this is my life
