Identify Lines Of Symmetry Math Games

In this series of games, your students will learn to recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts. The Identify Lines Of Symmetry learning objective — based on CCSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research. This learning objective directly references 4.G.A.3 as written in the common core national math standards.

Scroll down for a preview of this learning objective’s games and the concepts.

Concepts Covered

Recognize and draw line(s) of symmetry and line-symmetric figures (may be multiple or no lines of symmetry given the shape). Squares have 4 lines of symmetry (vertical, horizontal, and diagonals in both directions). Rectangles have 2 lines of symmetry (horizontal and vertical), a trapezoid has 1 (vertical), and a parallelogram has 0 lines of symmetry. Identify and draw lines of symmetry in quadrilaterals. Given half of a shape, draw the other half to create a symmetric figure.
