Handy Hints

Each point or block that has been reflected must remain the same distance from the mirror line as the original point. So if point A is 3 squares away from the mirror line, then the reflection of point A must also be 3 squares away.

When reflecting a shape, look at the corners of the shape and reflect each corner first as a dot in the mirror line. The dots can then be joined up (in the correct order!)

For lines of symmetry at angles of 45°, it is often better to rotate your paper so that the line of symmetry is vertical or horizontal, and the rest of the paper is at an angle.

The basis and understanding of symmetry starts at about Grade 2, and then develops further in Grades 3,4 and 5.

Symmetry Activity Sheets

On this webpage you will find our range of symmetry activity sheets for kids.

The sheets have been graded with the easier sheets coming first. The first set of worksheets involve only horizontal and vertical lines only. The next set involve reflecting patterns with two mirror lines.

There are also some templates at the end of this section for you to create your own shapes for your child to reflect, or, even better, for your child to create their own symmetric patterns!

Using these sheets will help your child to:- learn to reflect a more complex shape in a vertical or horizontal mirror line;
- learn to reflect a more complex shape in both a vertical and horizontal mirror line;
