Shape and Symmetry Games
This is an introductory lesson on symmetry to make students aware of its existence all around us.
What is symmetry?
A line of symmetry is an imaginary line that divides a figure in half.
If you fold a figure along a line of symmetry, both sides match.
Symmetry is found in nature, in art, in common objects, in letters and more.
Symmetry is also referred to as mirror image.

What is line symmetry? A shape has line symmetry when one half is the mirror image of the other half. The fold line or mirror line is called the line of symmetry. The line may appear vertically, horizontally or diagonally. Shape may have multiple lines of symmetry or no lines of symmetry.
