Drawing Lines of Symmetry on 2D Shapes

This double-sided lines of symmetry worksheet requires students to observe several different 2D shapes, and mark a line of symmetry on those where one exists. 

Teaching students to draw lines of symmetry on shapes where they exist encourages a deeper understanding of geometry concepts. It enhances their critical thinking, spatial reasoning, and problem-solving skills. While many templates focus on identifying already-drawn lines of symmetry, this sheet requires students to think critically, and problem solve to make a judgement and draw in the line of symmetry.

An answer key is included with your download to make marking fast and easy!  

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding  

For students who require an additional challenge, have them draw all the lines of symmetry for each shape.

Allow students who require extra support to draw only one line of symmetry for each shape; allow students to work on the worksheets with a partner.
