Use this set of eight symmetry worksheets to help students understand symmetry, the line of symmetry, and symmetrical objects.
Symmetry Worksheets: Symmetry Art
The perfect way to explore symmetry is here! These symmetry worksheets are perfect for developing a student’s knowledge and understanding of lines of symmetry. Help students grasp this concept by showing them these shapes which, when ‘folded’ along their lines of symmetry, can be mirrored on the other side of the page.
These fun math worksheets allow students to use their critical thinking skills to complete the second half of a picture (the first half is already on the page for them!), following a grid on the page.
Encourage students to study the half-done drawing on the worksheet and imagine that a line running through the middle of the paper will split the drawing into two equal parts. Then your students can fill in the matching grid squares to create a reflection of the given pattern. This will reveal a mystery picture.
Symmetrical designs included in this pack are:
- Happy Face Emoji
- Easter Egg
Teacher tip: Teaching a theme? Perhaps it’s Halloween and you could use the Spider design to liven up your lessons! The Castle design would work well when teaching about fairytale narratives. The options for using this maths resource in your thematic unit are many!
