All About Me Lantern

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF, Word | 1 page | Years: 2 - 6

A 3D lantern template to use with students at the beginning of the year.

Use this All About Me Lantern template as a fun ‘getting to know you’ display that helps students identify common interests among their peers. It is a great first week of school activity.

Students decorate their lanterns with fun colours and fill in their favourite things, family info, a fun fact about themselves and identify two goals they have for the year.

Cut out the window and add a photograph of the student inside the lantern. Alternatively, students can draw a self-portrait on the reverse side of ‘My Favourites’ section.

Hang the lanterns around the classroom or place on students’ desks.

Print the template on thick paper or cardstock for best results. An editable version is also available via the drop-down menu next to the download button.
