Subjects

This KS3 symmetry resource will enhance students’ understanding of geometric concepts. It comprises two worksheets, both tailored to foster a deeper comprehension of symmetry.

Reflective symmetry worksheet

In this reflective symmetry worksheet, students will explore the fundamental principles of symmetry through a practical exercise. They need to identify and name the company logo, then draw on all lines of symmetry.

Once they’ve done this, pupils can use the grids and lines of reflection to apply their knowledge by designing their own logos, thereby integrating theoretical concepts with practical applications.

This engaging activity not only reinforces the understanding of reflective symmetry but also encourages creative expression.

Rotation symmetry worksheet

Name the company. Give the order of rotational symmetry. Design your own logo with rotational symmetry on the provided grids.

In the rotation symmetry worksheet, students again need to name the logos, before determining the order of rotational symmetry for each logo design. The provided grids serve as a canvas for students to create their own logos.

KS3 symmetry in the curriculum

Geometry and Measures: Describe, sketch and draw using conventional terms and notations: points, lines, parallel lines, perpendicular lines, right angles, regular polygons, and other polygons that are reflectively and rotationally symmetric.
