Reflection of Shapes

Reflection of Shapes

Used with a mixed ability Year 3 class on reflection of shapes. There are 3 differentiated levels within the document and children should be encouraged to use a mirror and ruler.

Line symmetry

Line symmetry

Two worksheets about line symmetry that I have used with my year 3 class. Line symmetry - used with my top set, find lines of symmetry in the letters of the alphabet and use them to create symmetrical words. Draw on line symmetry - a selection of shapes that pupils could draw the lines of symmetry straight on the shapes or cut them out and fold to look for symmetry. Topcis also inlcuded: reflective symmetry.

Reflective Symmetry

Reflective Symmetry

An introductory worksheet designed for children working at level 2 or 3 of the national curriculum or for older children to revise from. Children shade in the squares to reflect the pattern at the other side of the “mirror”. Topics also included: understanding space and shape; Reflective symmetry.

shapes rotating

Uses a powerpoint presentation with hyperlinks - doesn't work if you run it with the arrow keys - to give children the opportunity to explore rotational symmetry. Looks particularly at the degree of rotational symmetry. Includes links at the end to sites on the internet where the children can explore other aspects of rotational symmetry.

Symmetry of Shapes: PowerPoint Presentation

Symmetry of Shapes: PowerPoint Presentation

Useful PowerPoint Presentation that can be used as a worksheet exercise for drawing lines of symmetry onto shapes. 10 slides with symmetrical images (e.g. buildings, rugs, animals etc) that need a line (or lines) of symmetry drawn on. Suitable for a quick starter on symmetry for KS3 students. Can also be used as an interactive resource on the IWB.

Reflections of 2D Shapes

Reflections of 2D Shapes

This activity is good for children to practise reflection. I have used this to extend my Above Average set (Y4) so some of the mirror lines (in red) and the shapes themselves are a bit tricky! Hope it's useful.

Mirror Writing

Mirror Writing

Worksheet that involves matching two copies of letters. Taken together using line and rotational symmetry they make different words.

This powerpoint focusses on symmetry of objects and animals and includes an activity. I did this during a topic on the seaside, hence the objects used for the main activity.
