Symmetry Help

The Math Salamanders have a large bank of free printable symmetry worksheets.

Each symmetry sheet comes complete with answers for support.

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.

Line Symmetry Worksheets

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

The sheets have been carefully graded with the easier sheets coming first. The first 3 worksheets involve only horizontal and vertical lines only. The next 3 worksheets involve reflecting diagonal lines as well.

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 shape in a vertical or horizontal mirror line;
  • learn to reflect a shape in both a vertical and horizontal mirror line;

Reflecting in 1 mirror line

Horizontal and Vertical Lines only

Reflecting in Diagonal mirror lines

Reflecting in 2 mirror lines

Explore 2d Shapes Worksheets

Looking for some geometry worksheets to get children thinking and reasoning about 2d shapes?

The shapes on this page are all about children really understanding what 2d shapes are all about, and using their reasoning skills to justify their thinking.

Using these sheets will help your child to:

  • know the properties of a range of 2d shapes;
  • recognise that some shapes can also be described as being other shapes; e.g. a square is also a rhombus;
  • recognise and understand right angles, parallel lines, lines of symmetry;
  • develop their geometric reasoning skills.

Coordinate Sheets

Here is our collection of printable coordinate plane grids and coordinate worksheets.

Using these fun coordinate sheets is a great way to learn math in an enjoyable way.

Using these sheets will help your child to:

  • plot and write coordinates.
