Today we are looking at line symmetry in 2D shapes.


Remember, a shape is symmetrical if you can divide it into matching halves. 

You can explore symmetry by folding paper shapes or by using a mirror on the line of symmetry.


Try the activity.

Now choose a 2D shape and record all of it's properties.

How many sides, corners and lines of symmetry does it have? 

Can you tell me anything else about it?


Extension: Think about the word: EXIT. How many lines of symmetry are in each letter?
