For each student, you will need:
- 3 brown paper lunch bags
- 3 pieces of ribbon (each piece about 3 inches long)
- 6 squares colored construction or cardstock paper (about 4 1/2 inches x 4 1/2 inches)
- glue stick
- hole punch
- copies of All About Me template (Get the FREE download HERE.)
6 template pieces for the booklet. The free download has black and white pieces for the inside pages. It also has colored pieces for the cover, if you want to print in color. The download is editable, so you can type in your students' names in your favorite font. You can also have them write their own name in marker, if you want to go that route.
When the book is all assembled, have students draw, color, add embellishments, make lists, add pictures, create collages, and make the project their own individual expression of who they are. The pages with open ends of the bags can be used to hold extra items, such as photos and memorabilia. If students do this, they may want to secure those pages closed with paper clips or brads when the booklet is not in use.
After all booklets are finished, have students take turn sharing their creations with the rest of the class!
