Craft: Paper Selfies
Get to know new students with this tech-savvy twist on the “all about me” book.
- Grades: PreK–K, 1–2, 3–5, 6–8
A twist on the “all about me” book, this accordion-fold version made with smartphone templates stands out (and up) thanks to its design. With a little folding, cutting, and coloring, students can create a personalized “smartbook”.
What You'll Need:
Bristol board or heavy paper
Magazines, colored paper, other collage materials
1 Print two template sheets on bristol board or heavy paper.
2 Cut out the templates, leaving 1/2" extra on the left side of one template. Use this to tape the two templates together creating a row of 6 smart phones.
3 Attach a photo of each student to the first phone screen, then fill in other screens with "favorites". Have students add a drawing, photo or collage to illustrate. Soon you'll know their favorite sports, subjects, and more!
This modern spin on a getting-to-know-you craft is fun for students and a great way to break the ice during the first week of school!
