The Math Salamanders have a large bank of free printable symmetry worksheets.
Each symmetry sheet comes complete with answers for support.
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 Sheets
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:
Reflecting in 1 mirror line
Horizontal and Vertical Lines only
Reflecting in Diagonal mirror lines
Reflecting in vertical, horizontal and diagonal lines
Reflecting in 2 mirror lines
Reflecting in vertical and horizontal or 2 diagonal lines
Line Symmetry templates
Here you will find a range of line symmetry activity sheets with one or two mirror lines.
The sheets in this section are similar to those on this page, but are more complicated and at a harder level.
Block Symmetry Worksheets
Here you will find a range of symmetry worksheets reflecting blocks instead of lines.
These sheets are at an easier level than the ones on this page.
