Use these fun and colourful symmetry picture task cards to help students identify lines of symmetry in both everyday objects and 2D shapes.

Use this set of 20 bright and happy task cards to help your students practise identifying lines of symmetry. Included in this download are the cards themselves, a student recording sheet and an answer key to make marking fast and easy!

Through this activity, students will show their ability to recognise line symmetry of shapes.

## How to Use Symmetry Picture Task Cards

Student needs a recording sheet, shuffled deck of task cards, and dry erase markers if cards are laminated. Students will need to record their answers to each question card on their recording sheet in the box with the number that matches the card. If cards are laminated, students are free to draw the lines of symmetry on the shapes on the purple cards.

Here are some other uses for these task cards in your program:

🛴 Scoot Activity

Place the cards around the room in numerical order and give each student a recording sheet. Assign students or pairs to a starting point card. Give students time to review the card and record their answers in the corresponding space on their paper. Students will rotate to the next card when you say, “SCOOT!” Continue in this manner until students return to their starting point.

👋 Exit Ticket

Use these cards as a formative assessment after your lesson. Pick a random assortment of cards and project them on the board for the whole class to see. Students can record their answers on a sheet of paper, sticky note or notebook.

## Easily Prepare This Resource for Your Students

Print on cardboard for added durability and longevity. Place all pieces in a folder or large envelope for easy access.

To keep the task cards out of pockets or under desks, punch a hole in the corner of each to place them on a binder ring.

Sustainability Tip: Print a few recording sheets on cardboard and slip them into write-and-wipe sleeves. Students can record their answers with a whiteboard marker, then erase and reuse them.
