Line Symmetry

This week we are reviewing line symmetry. Another name for this is reflection symmetry, one half of the image is the reflection of the other half.

The 'Line of Symmetry' is the imaginary line where you could fold the image and have both halves match exactly.

An excellent range of resources, including interactive lessons, are here.
BBC Bitesize have an excellent online lesson.

A line symmetry game is here.
Complete the reflections game is here.
