Point of View with the Hump Day Camel

It occurred to me that GEICO has been making some amazing commercials for teaching point-of-view...and I blame it all on those HUMP DAY camels.

You've seen the original commercial (below) and probably have kids running through school screaming "hump day" every Wednesday.

This second one is from the camel's point of view.  It might be even funnier, partly because it pokes fun at their self-created phenomenon and the camels look down-right frustrated.

These two 30 seconds commercials are the perfect examples of how point of view works.  Students can quickly recognize the differences, compare and contrast, and understand the how and why of POV.

Next time you're looking to teach POV, I'd suggest using these commercials.  And make sure you teach it on a Wednesday.
