Quickname: 7218

Suitable for K-12 grades: Grade 4 Grade 5 Grade 6

Elementary School, Primary School, Junior High School, Middle School.


For each one of a series of shapes, determine whether it has mirror- or point symmetry.


For each one of a series of shapes, determine whether it has mirror- or point symmetry. (Example for this math problem)


Symmetry and its kinds are very important topics to develop basic concepts related to graphs and shapes. A series of geometric shapes is presented. There are two checkboxes for each shape, one labeled "mirror symmetry", the other labeled "point symmetry." The task is to check the boxes next to the types of symmetry the shape possesses.

A wonderful resource to grasp the understanding related to kinds of symmetry. It will be more enjoyable and thoughtful when used in small groups. The complexity level can be personalized to use these worksheets from grade 4 to grade 6. The firm practice of these worksheets can help to achieve the following array of targets.

  1. Use of graphs related to different shapes.
  2. Learn the kinds of symmetry of a shape.
  3. Build strong decision-making skills based on prior knowledge by choosing the correct option.

The number of problems is selectable and the number of shapes for each problem can be chosen. Shapes are grouped into three classes of complexity:

  1. Simple and regular shapes
  2. Nonregular shapes
  3. More complex shapes

The group from which shapes will be presented can be selected. Either one or both types of symmetry can be asked for, this is configurable. The answer key will contain all the correct boxes checked.
