Line of Symmetry

by Bhavini Pandya June 23, 2020

This What’s in my tray? activity helps to illustrate what a  line of symmetry looks like. Have a go at this activity to complete different shapes and find out how many lines of symmetry they have.

  • Maths (KS1 and KS2)
  • Line of symmetry
  • Simple to recreate at home.

What to do:

  • Find an empty tray or surface space to work on.
  • Using masking tape, make a line down the middle.
  • Gather a range of everyday objects from around the home (x2 of each item)
  • On one side create a pattern or shape.
  • Challenge a partner to create the exact same shape on the other side of the tape- creating a whole shape with a line of symmetry.
