Take a large piece of paper and fold it in half

With wet paint paint a pattern on one half

While the paint is still wet fold the paper over and press it down

Open it out to see your symmetrical pattern

Line symmetry is when you can divide the shape in half so they fit exactly onto themselves. You can find out if a shape is symmetrical by either folding it in half or holding a mirror down the centre to see if it looks the same.

Run your mouse over the shapes and images below to see where their lines of symmetry are.

Some shapes can be folded in more than one way. We say that this shape has 2 lines of symmetry or 3 or 4...

Reflection Game

Copy the pattern in the opposite grid as if looking in an mirror. Create your own pattern or click random to copy a given pattern.

Symmetry Sorting

Sorting the pictures or letters whether they are symmetrical or not. Or have a go at selecting the right picture to make a symmetrical pattern.
