 # Know Your 2D Shapes: Lines of Symmetry in Letters

In this worksheet, students state how many lines of symmetry a letter has. Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Geometry: Properties of Shapes

Curriculum subtopic:   Identify Line Symmetry in 2D Shapes

Difficulty level:   ### QUESTION 1 of 10

This worksheet is about lines of symmetry.

A line of symmetry is a mirror line.

If we fold a shape along it's line of symmetry, both halves either side of the line will match when folded.

Example

How many lines of symmetry can be drawn on this shape?  The letter E has 1 line of symmetry.
