Materials: A print out of this worksheet


1. These pictures are found in the real world.

  • Draw the reflectional line of symmetry for each picture.
  • Are the lines of symmetry horizontal or vertical (Circle one)?

If the picture does not have any reflectional lines of symmetry, just write, no lines of symmetry!

How many reflectional lines of symmetry can you find in each picture?

If the picture does not have any reflectional lines of symmetry, state that.


How many lines of symmetry? _____ How many lines of symmetry? _____

How many lines of symmetry? _____ How many lines of symmetry? _____



Only half of the images below are shown. Draw the other half using reflectional symmetry.







"Show Me" Standards

2. Geometric and spatial sense involving measurement (including length, area, volume), trigonometry, and similarity and transformations of shapes. NCTM Standards Apply transformations and use symmetry to analyze mathematical situations.
