All About Me Lantern

PDF, Word | 1 page|Grades: 3 - 6

A 3-D 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 colors and fill in their favorite 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 the ‘My Favorites’ section.

Hang the lanterns around the classroom or place them 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.
