These personalized 3-D trees provide the perfect introduction to your students for the new school year!

This activity is appropriate for:
kindergarten - 3rd grade / 5 - 8 years

You will need:

Before You Begin:

  1. Collect a photo of each student.
  2. Trim each photo to wallet-sized so that it will fit on the tree.
  3. Print out the tree template and trunk support template, and use them to trace onto brown foam sheets. Use the lines as guides to show you where to cut vertically along the trunk of each foam shape.

Directions

  1. Give each student a copy of the tree template and trunk support template traced onto brown foam sheets, and have them cut out each shape. (You may want to precut the shapes for younger students.)
  2. Help students fit the tree and trunk support foam shapes together so that the tree stands upright on a flat surface.
  3. Have students glue their photos onto the top of the tree trunk, just below the tree branches.
  4. Give each student a leaves template, and encourage them to cut out and write words on each leaf that describe something they like, a sport they play, a hobby they have or how they enjoy spending their time (e.g., swimming, basketball, coloring, with friends and so on).
    Note: You may want to have younger students dictate these to you as you write with a marker.
  5. Finally, have students glue the leaves onto the branches of the foam tree.
  6. Ask students to cut out more leaves to decorate their tree.
  7. Write the student’s name on the trunk of her tree, and display these “All About Me” Trees on Back-To-School Night or around the classroom for other students to appreciate!
